After Skylark's Monday night dub party, Skylarking, this scene won't take flight right away -- in fact, the beginning of the week is given over primarily to cats and dogs, with the occasional primate thrown in for good measure -- but then, bam: Tiny Owl at the Luggage Store on Thursday, Odd Owl at Hemlock Tavern on Thursday too, and tweemo-glitchsters Owl City supporting John Mayer at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on Friday. Should be a hoot. (See also Dirtybird's residency at Mezzanine on Friday and LA's Slang Chickens at the Hemlock on Saturday.)
3. Rhythm & Snooze
Local and out-of-town patriots alike join forces this week in a misguided revolution against British orthography through extreme pluralization. On the heels of "I'll Be Seeing Youz...: A Bronx Boy's Musical Perspective of World War II," running Tuesday through Sunday at the helpfully named Rrazz Room, Tuesday boasts "Grrlz" at Q Bar; Wednesday has both DJ WaltDigz at Roccapulco, and Diamond Ortiz & the Oldeez at the Boom Boom Room. Thursday: "Booze 'Em Buddiez 9" at the Rock It Room. Friday: hip-hop collective Sisterz of the Underground is feting its ninth anniversary at Club Six. Something tells me this one's definitely gonna last more than a week.
