Shows in LA to check out...
Haloscan is down so my comments are off for a day or so...they are a great company and should be back up soon, I'm sure.
Here's some upcoming shows that should be good if you live in LA:
BENEFIT CENCERT FOR THE AMNESTY OF CHHOM NIMOL
with RADAR BROS.
dj sets by RODDY from IMPERIAL TEEN
Sunday, March 2 - Derby - $10 (minimum donation)
"Chhom Nimol, lead singer of a popular local L.A. Cambodian rock band Dengue Fever has been arrested. She was apprehended during the "code orange" terrorist sweep Friday, February 7th returning home from a concert in San Diego. Chhom Nimol is being held without bail in an I.N.S. detention center in San Diego. Our efforts now are to keep her in this country with her family and friends...lawyer fees are expensive. We have planned two events, a fundraiser/party on Thursday, February 27th at the Short Stop bar, and a benefit concert featuring the Radar Brothers, Future Pigeon, Brazzaville, and special guests on Sunday, March 2nd at the The Fold in the Derby. For more information email us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
FYI, Chhom Nimol is one of the least dangerous people in America and I am disgusted by her arrest. See what I mean here.
