Los Angeles Show Calendar: February 2008

We’re back. As usual, this is far from a complete listing — it’s just the shows I personally recommend. My can’t-miss gigs for this month (read: the ones I can afford and/or get press tix for) are St. Vincent at the Echo, Liars and No Age at the El Rey, and British Sea Power at Spaceland. If you’re going to the free Kimya Dawson set at Amoeba, plan on getting there early: it’ll be Oscar weekend in L.A. and Juno fever will be hot enough to break thermometers.

Tuesday, 2/12 – Rufus Wainwright @ The Wiltern
Thursday, 2/14 – Brian Wilson, Kris Kristofferson and Was Not Was @ The Orpheum
Friday, 2/15 – Siouxsie Sioux and Rasputina @ The Henry Fonda — I hear Carman’s giving away free tickets to this on his radio show.
