TONIGHT: WTTD Los Angeles recommendations for Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Antibalas at Echoplex with the Sway Machinery opening (three thumbs up show from j.s.)

La Roux has really nice hair @ Club Nokia with Ana Calderon

Threadless West Coast Social @ The Echo Greg Dulli (DJ set)

(fukkin’ love love love this movie, and it has one of the best death scenes of all time in it.) Dogs In Space and We’re Livin’ on Dog Food @ Cinefamily “Unscreened in Los Angeles for ages, Richard Lowenstein’s seminal Australian post-punk masterpiece Dogs In Spacecomes to the Cinefamily in a brand-new HD restoration! Based on Lowenstein’s own whirlwind experiences as a young man in the heart of the late ’70s Melbourne scene, the film is a dense, chaotic stew of vignettes charting the endless 24/7 partying that takes place in a trashy communal house — a magical realm in which its wild, impoverished inhabitants do dope, go to shows, play shows, smash TVs, occasionally go to school, and generally live out a gloriously hedonistic life path. In the center of this storm is Sam (played by INXS frontman Michael Hutchence), the charismatic heroin addict whose Zen-like calm fares him well amongst a kingdom’s worth of other jokers, junkies and misfits. Part Time Punks main man DJ Michael Stock will be spinning records before and after the films!”
