It’s all about indie label, Mexican Summer in Los Angeles this week.

Tonight (5/1) Montreal’s, No Joy, bring their swirling, nu gaze to the Troubadour stage.  If you have yet to listen to their latest album, Wait To Pleasure, be sure to get on that as it will most likely appear on most best of 2013 lists. We’re obsessed.

The great wall of sound continues on Friday night (5/3) when our forever favorite, Tamaryn plays the Echoplex.  Mexican Summer released last year's Tender New Signs to much acclaim and honestly, this record is still in rotation. Also, watch this.

Finally, check out label mates, The Fresh and Onlys on Tuesday night (5/7) when they open for Kurt Vile at the Echoplex. This San Francisco band appeals to fans of The Shout Out Louds and The Mary Onettes and have been laying low since their release of Long Slow Dance. If this is your sound/scene, then definitely make time to see this show.

Or all the shows, even.
