2. You could also drive to Echo Park and watch Laguna Hills native Aloe Blacc wrap up his 2010 tour at the Echoplex. If there's anyone to credit for hipsters loving neo soul, it would be him.
3. The Ziggens are out and about on Friday, with a show at diPiazza's along with Corn Doggy Dog. According to Ned Raggett, "While forever associated with the impact of Sublime via shared label connections and Bradley Nowell's open fandom, the Ziggens' own way around punk and ska - not to mention their often engagingly rude and ridiculous lyrics - made them almost Descendents-like for a slightly later time, heartfelt but apt to hide it under cartoonishness. Presumably they'll keep at it forever at this point, homegrown heroes well into a third decade together."
