Until then, hipsters rejoice! Three of the most buzzed-about bands in the country are gracing the Spanish Moon this week: L.A. electro-pop sensations Health, true believers in the powers of epic rock British Sea Power and next big thing Colour Revolt (their new album, Plunder, Beg and Curse, is the editor's pick in May's issue of Paste) will all rally the troops. The funky side of things is sewn up nicely by Big Sam's Funky Nation and the Mike Foster Project at Chelsea's, and Nashville veteran singer-songwriter David Olney will offer a close-up and personal view of what his bio rightly calls "a sharp literary mind that cuts to the bone of the human condition" at the Red Dragon, where all the proceeds go directly to the artist.
Required listening for the week: Nick Cave has gotten over his melancholia and side projects to erupt perverse and soul-injected with Dig! Lazarus, Dig! It the most fun you can have while feeling dirty.
