Desert Daze is almost here! At last, we’ll soon be enjoying the likes of Tame Impala, Warpaint and My Bloody Valentine in a trippy scenic locale by the waters of Lake Perris. But just as Desert Daze has taken over our thoughts, hearts, conversations and lives, the psychedelic music festival will engulf Los Angeles this week with must-see kick-off shows featuring Jarvis Cocker, TT, IDLES, Shellac, Shannon and the Clams and more.
This week’s Best Shows This Week calendar also features an excess of unrelated musical riches, such as The Buttertones, Ozzy Osborne, Lily Allen, three nights of Drake and more. For all the tough decision making, have a careful look at our concert calendar below
