Holly Miranda - March 12 at Bootleg

“She's a bona-fide singer-songwriter who can and will simply sell a song around just her voice and the sound of an acoustic guitar… Miranda's mature, world-weary inflections bring everything-- nightmares, hopes, loss-- to the fore. Her crackling vocals lend themselves to murkiness and intrigue.” – Pitchfork

Broken Bells' First Show Ever - at Bootleg TONIGHT (n' Sold Out!)

Shins frontman James Mercer and producer-to-the-stars Danger Mouse are now a duo called Broken Bells, and they'll drop their debut album on March 9 via Columbia. At this exact moment, the duo have played exactly zero shows. But fast-acting Los Angelenos can witness the band's very first show real, real soon. Tonight, they'll make their onstage debut at L.A.'s Bootleg Theater.

If you miss that one, Mercer and Danger have three other live shows planned. At the beginning of March, they'll hit Paris and London. And on March 17, they'll play NPR Music's SXSW showcase at the Austin venue Stubb's, joining a stacked lineup that includes Spoon, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, the Walkmen, and Visqueen. The line to get into that one is going to be nuts. All the band's tour dates are below.

Broken Bells:

02-19 Los Angeles, California - Bootleg Theater
03-01 Paris, France - Nouveau Casino
03-03 London, England - ICA
03-17 Austin, TX - Stubb's (NPR Music showcase) *

Titus Andronicus - March 23 at Bootleg

“Titus Andronicus' The Airing Of Grievances brooks no bullshit. The disc is the sound of lusty youth ripping a gaping hole in the fabric of reality: Throughout The Airing's nine sawed-off anthems, the Jersey collective comes off like a clunky, blood-knuckled Arcade Fire that just doesn't have time for all that respectable crap. Because, you know, the world is falling apart around their heads, and they only have this one shot at eating, fighting, and fucking the entire universe." - The Onion AV Club

"None of these highfalutin' shout-outs will grab your ear as powerfully as the demonic E Street Band arrangements, rife with constant builds and breakneck rhythms... they've studied their philosophy and found that life actually is pointless, so why not go down swinging?" - Pitchforkmedia

"This fivesome of suburban punks are proud nerds. But they know when to kick ass... and the sizzling, storage-locker production makes it all sound like a cage match. Which it is — between a band and a damaged world." - Rolling Stone

"It's a cliche, but Titus Andronicus has got to be one of the hardest working bands around." – Brooklynvegan

"Not since the Replacements raised a pint glass in the name of punk has a gang of hood rats so rousingly resurrected the legend of the American bar band." - Entertainment Weekly

The Watson Twins - 2/17 at Bootleg w/ Deep Sea Diver and Daisy McCrackin

"Their soulful harmonies are at the center of a sparkling pop sound that has a Memphis-meets-L.A. texture and hooks that work their charms on you instantly." Elle Magazine

"As sisters Chandra and Leigh's harmonies wrap around hissing cymbals and jazzy guitar, this languorous, closing-time cabaret song builds into a long slow good-night kiss to melt all your late-winter blues." – Marie Claire Magazine

“A dark yet mellow record in which the sultry vocals of Chandra and Leigh Watson stand out enough without overshadowing the retro guitar and organ parts they accompany. The sisters Watson manage to transcend eras, at times sonically resembling 1960s female pop and soul, other times Pink Floyd.” – Spinner
