The Olms--See Tuesday
Don't forget to check out our constantly updated OC Concert Calendar

Monday, November 9

May McDonough and Company
Detroit Bar
Behold! One of LA's premier groups mixing up a flavorful blend of garage and lo-fi with such a noisey joie de vie. Wax Children have been at the psychedelic pop sound for quite some time, and coming from the land of El Lay, they're in good company with other bands from the Lolipop records label. Try to count all the goosebumps you'll get once you hear such the big sound emanating from the speakers. Good vibes all around tonight at Detroit Bar with May McDonough and Company and Deep Fields.

Tapioca and the Flea
The Constellation Room
Over the last few months, Tapioca and the Flea's profile boost in the eyes of indie rock tastemakers comes on the heels of a relentless radio campaign inspired by front man Samuel Lopez's new and improved sound bolstered by a band full of his best friends and roommates. Right around the time stations like 89.9 FM KCRW and 98.7 ALT FM began to take notice, Lopez--along with drummer Matt McClanahan, guitarist Ronnie Knott and bassist/keyboardist Frank Alva--were already on a mission to play key gigs like Silverlake's Jubliee Fest well as packed shows at Bardot and House of Blues. Currently, the band is on the cusp of releasing their new EP in the fall. Catch their residency every Monday this month at the Constellation Room. (Nate Jackson)

Tuesday, December 10
The Olms
The Constellation Room
Musician Pete Yorn and artist/musician J.D. King both carry the effervescent sound of retro pop mixed with contemporary indie rock in their collaboration called The Olms. Filled with a sunny, devil-may-care warmth, attributable to multiple instruments and a folk rock charm, there's something familiar about The Olms' music. For fans of classic '60s folk rockstar Donovan, some of The Olms' songs will fill you with a dreamy haziness best seen in the flesh. See them tonight close up at The Constellation Room.
