Wednesday 19
This week it was locals the Lanterns that pricked up my ears. The frantic fuzz and sting of the quartet's post-core tunes smack of Les Savy Fav, which the band name checks on their MySpace page. None of the vocal theatrics of Tim Harrington, just good, clean noise-rock and canny vox. Catch 'em at the Ché Wednesday night, as it looks like they're heading north for a while. Snuffalufagus , Brian Warren, and Moon Current also on the bill.... Gary Shuffler's annual birthday circus is at Casbah, and he's pulling out his Ziggy Shuffledust stuff and getting positively Bowie. The former Honey Glaze frontman will be 87 this year. Sultry Savage Burlesque and Tragic Tantrum share the stage, and Bartender's Bible will set up in the Atari Lounge.... Round North Park you got L.A. hard-beat nu-wavers Funeral Party at Beauty Bar and acousticat Ryan Tennis at the new U-31 club. -- Barnaby Monk
