The Overture: November 22 – 28

WHAT: Hayley Jane, Cheaper Hits, Avery Strange

WHERE: Mike ‘N Molly’s ($5)

WHEN: Friday, November 25th at 10:00 p.m. 

Shake off the tryptophan hangover with some good ol’ burlesque. Supporting are local rockers Cheaper Hits and the supremely weird Avery Strange.

WHAT: Skeletons, Motes, Baby & Hide

WHERE: Mike ‘N Molly’s

WHEN: Saturday, November 26th at 10:00 p.m.

Fans of Clams Casino and Flying Lotus are advised to check out Skeletons, who applies the aforementioned’s layers of bass and reverb to some honest to god pop songs. The results are intoxicating. Listen.

WHAT: Billy Joe Shaver

WHERE: Rose Bowl ($20 advance)

WHEN: Sunday, November 27th at 7:30 p.m.

Here’s a shortlist of people Billy Joe Shaver has written for and worked with: Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings, Dickey Betts, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson…suffice to say, the man is an outlaw country legend, and you don’t get to see someone of his stature in a venue as cozy as the Rose Bowl too often. He even shot some dude in the face back in 2007. Outlaw!
