Synth-pop trio Chvrches delivers The Bones of What You Believe to House of Blues on Tues.
L.A. alt-rockers Nightmare Air seep into Soda Bar on Monday.

Monday 18
One of the Crawler’s favorite L.A. acts, the alt-rock trio Nightmare Air drifts into Soda Bar Monday night. Bassist/vocalist Swaan Miller and guitarist Dave Dupuis (Film School) throw down layers of lush harmonics that are deceptively rocking and more than a studied studio affect — the pair crush it onstage. The debut’s called High in the Lasers, if you want to hit up the merch table after, and I think you will. Their pals, the nu-gaze Danes Foreign Resort and Lorelei Plotczyk's (also in Film School) Bulletins, will warm it up.... KPBS’s Live at the Belly Up will be filming a tasty TV spot with that big-rocking, roots-stomping steamroller of soul the Heavy Guilt. Blues-rock babydoll Candye Kane and rump-bumpin’ big Hammond band Earful also part of the docu-rock proceedings.

Tuesday 19
Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches visits House of Blues behind this year’s critical hit The Bones of What You Believe. I don’t know much about this stuff — the press on them is too overwhelming. Welcome to Hype City. Anyway, this caught my eye: “[Singer Lauren Mayberry] has a law degree and a master’s in journalism, so she writes like she has something to say, not just to fill the space in the songs.” Then why does she spell church with a v?.... Couple, three more mentionables, as L.A. electro-pop duo Night Terrors of 1927 (ex–Rilo Kiley) hit Soda Bar with Guilty Pleas...surf-jazz siblings the Mattson 2 join Tolan Shaw and Uncle Jesse for a locals-only Radio Halloran date at the Griffin...and Harlem-based hip-hop hit A$ap Ferg (he’s part of the A$ap Mob crew) rocks the mic at all-ages Epicentre in Mira Mesa, touring in support of his new joint, Trap Lord.

Wednesday 20
I’m over, as usual. Sorry, Wednesday bands, for the short shrift...acousti-punk duo Andrew Jackson Jihad takes the stage at Casbah. Nothing new from these two, which is A-OK, as 2011’s Knife Man still has legs. Pick it up; check ’em out at the cluuub...indie-vet and Tiny Telephone operator John Vanderslice is at Soda Bar. Dude’s CV is enviable...English indie hit Kate Nash plugs in at Porter’s Pub. She’s got Girl Talk to share...and Hermosa Beach punk perennials Pennywise bring All or Nothing to Belly Up. Get out and get some!
