02.14: Massage plays free V-Day show at Highland Park Bowl's Indiepop Party

Forget the flowers, the candy, and the expensive gifts. Bring your date, your significant other, or yourself to Highland Park Bowl for a free show featuring LA's top jangle poppers Massage. Massage play a smattering of shows every year, and this performance at Highland Park Bowl -- free, by the way -- makes for your first opportunity to see the band in 2020. Joining Massage are San Francisco's Starry Eyed Cadet, as well as Dummy, an indie supergroup made up of members from Wildhoney and Expert Alterations. You may not find a cheaper or better V-Day event than this, so get your bowling arm and dancing legs ready and head to Highland Park Bowl on February 14th for a free night of fantastic music. Take a listen to the title track from Massage's 2018 LP Oh Boy below. - Will Sisskind

02.13: Moaning plays a free show at the reopened Moon Room

If you recall the dust-up at the Atwater Bar last year, you may have written off the space -- as well as the Griffin -- as a place to catch live music in LA for good. But never fear, because the Moon Room has opened its doors on that site, and shoegaze alt-rockers Moaning will play a free show there on February 13th. The trio have a new album called Uneasy Laughter dropping in March, on which they'll debut their more synth-friendly sound. While the usual doom-tinged drum & bass and abrasive guitars aren't going anywhere, Moaning have brought a few new instruments into the mix to add a little texture to their tracks. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you dance, and it'll make you want more. Take a look at the video for the album's first track "Ego" below, and catch Moaning at the Moon Room on 2/13. - Will Sisskind

02.09: Tropa Magica bring smoky psych rock to La Santa

Fans of Thee Commons will find that the brother duo of David and Rene Pacheco have rebranded to become Tropa Magica, taking their psychedelic cumbia punk and infusing it with smoky, funky sounds. They'll bring their act to La Santa for a performance on February 9th. The Pacheco brothers put out their debut record as Tropa Magica near the end of 2018, showcasing their affinity for music which blends world beats and pop together into infectious dance tracks. They'll play several shows this spring up and down the West Coast to introduce old Thee Commons fans and new Tropa Magica fans to their tracks. Take a listen to the sultry "La Flor" below. - Will Sisskind

ROBOTS&BALLOONS releases third single from debut EP "I'll Be Fine"

Grammy-nominated producer Eric Denniston, releasing music as ROBOTS&BALLOONS, put out his third single "I'll Be Fine" this past week; it is the third single from his upcoming debut EP Stranded. With grungy tones and a persistent bassline, "I'll Be Fine" explores themes of loneliness and isolation stemming from the ending of a romance. The song pushes, but it knows when to pull its punches, simulating the feelings of someone messing with your head. The emotion comes through in "I'll Be Fine", and it further sets the stage for what's to come on Stranded when it drops later this year. Take a listen to "I'll Be Fine" below. - Will Sisskind
