The Best of (NE)LA 2009

Our site has been on one of our infrequent hiatuses recently that I apologize for without being able to promise it won’t happen again soon. We have some “Beyond Northeast” posts forthcoming, but felt that after two weeks of silence we owed you something local. Although there are always plenty of tragedies to cynically exploit in a city as big as Los Angeles, we’ve decided to give you something to feel good about by passing along all local winners in LA Weekly’s Best of Los Angeles 2009. Enjoy!

Best Ethnic Deli Counter: Super King Market in Glassell Park

Best Vintage Musical Instrument Store: Future Music in Highland Park

Best Unkown Bookstore: Read in Eagle Rock

Best Caterer for these Troubled Times: Jennie Cooks Catering in Glassell Park

Best New Place for Live Music: Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock

Best Coffee Shop for Musicians: Cafe de Leche in Highland Park

Also, to avoid uploading a second LA Weekly post in the same day, Jonathan Gold (who I drove past on my commute to work this morning) confirms his love for Casa Bianca.

 

Eagle Rock Music Festival 2009

Parents subjecting their toddlers to late night noise-pop sets, pet owners exposing their dogs to loud noises and crowds, and the well adjusted had a good time at yesterday’s Eagle Rock Music Festival. Enjoy some videos below, and if you haven’t already, I highly suggest picking up No Age and Ollin’s albums.

Fish that tight D.A.R.E. shirt out of your closet and wash your skinny jeans because the 11th Annual Eagle Rock Music Festival is set to remind some of us how close we’re getting to being officially middle-aged on October 3rd.  I’ll admit, I’m not nearly cool enough to know any of these bands beyond Ollin (read a previous story on the band here), but there seems to be some buzz surrounding The French Semester and The Happy Hollows.  See the entire lineup at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock website.  Best of all, the concert is free!
