fri 10/19 Jackson Browne
@ MccABE’S GUITAR SHOP
L.A. native Jackson Browne has been blending rock, folk and country since his 1972 self-titled debut, which featured friends as prestigious as David Crosby, Graham Nash and Albert Lee. He put out three more albums in the next four years, and it’s the
last of those, 1976’s The Pretender, that shot Browne to international stardom, thanks in no small part to the title track. Nowadays, every folky, country-infused indie band with any modicum of hipster appeal cites Browne as an influence. Needless to say, the man has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence in recent years. His 2014 album, Standing in the Breach, is a goodie, as is last year’s The Road East: Live in Japan. These intimate gigs with Greg Leisz, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of beloved guitar store McCabe’s, should be something special, although both appear to be sold out. Also Saturday, Oct. 20. —Brett Callwood
Paradise Lost
@ 1720
British goth-metal band Paradise Lost are not particularly well known on this side of the Atlantic, at least not to those who don’t soak themselves in underground metal on a daily basis. But over in Europe, these guys ride high on festival bills and play to crowds of thousands. Their accolades are deserved, too; from their 1990 debut Lost Paradise album, they’ve made it their business to not sit still, blurring genre boundaries and constantly reinventing themselves. That debut was fairly straightforward death metal, but by the time 1993’s Icon rolled around, the elements of goth were stronger and a new sound
was born. ’99’s Host saw them dial down
the ferocity and go for a more synth-pop, Depeche Mode–esque sound. Since then, the heaviness has returned somewhat, and last year’s Medusa was a sludgy beauty. This rare U.S. show is a must-see. —Brett Callwood
sat 10/20 Le Butcherettes
@ THE HI-HAT
When singer Teri Gender Bender formed
the bloody Mexican punk/performance-art spectacle Le Butcherettes in Guadalajara in 2007, she was accompanied only by a single percussionist, Auryn Jolene. When Jolene left the band two years later, Gender Bender relocated Le Butcherettes to L.A. and has performed under the name with different members; she’s backed by a full band these days. Throughout it all, Gender Bender has remained a provocative performer onstage, and the group’s recent releases, such as Spi- der/WAVES, demonstrate Le Butcherettes’ increasing stylistic range, which encom- passes punk aggression, hard-rock power and prog-rock artiness. The Mars Volta’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has long champi- oned their music as a producer and occa- sional guest star. On Le Butcherettes’ 2018 EP, Struggle/STRUGGLE, tracks vary from spacy interludes and acoustic guitar–driven intimacy to funky, percussive strangeness. —Falling James

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
@ THE FORUM
With Bad Seeds keys man Conway Savage leaving this mortal coil this year, the current run of shows carries a particularly poignant air. 2013’s Push the Sky Away was Savage’s final album with the Bad Seeds, while 2016’s Skeleton Tree, Cave’s 16th studio album with the band, was a typically brilliant slab of work. At this point, Cave can do no wrong. The guy is the epitome of dark, vampy cool, and the consistent quality of his work since he formed the Bad Seeds in Melbourne, Australia, in 1983 is staggering. Hopefully, we’ll get new material soon. In the mean- time, the current lineup of the band is delivering live, and Cave himself is a bona fide rock & roll legend and lyrical poet. If you haven’t seen him yet, take this chance. —Brett Callwood
Marty Friedman
@ THE VIPER ROOM
The mythic aura of Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman grew among die-hard heavy metal aficionados after he left the Dave Mustaine–fronted metal act in 2000, moved to Japan and immersed himself in

that country’s pop music scene, having found himself more infatuated with Japan’s culture and music than the traditional metal he made his name with. Friedman began reintroducing himself to American metal audiences earlier this decade, with newer records such as 2017’s Wall of Sound being instrumental shred-guitar opuses with plenty of face-melters that pleased longtime headbangers while tastefully integrating the Japanese pop melodies
he indulged in during his self-imposed exile. Friedman’s live performances — as evidenced on his new live record, ONE BAD M.F. Live!! — consist of a healthy mix of tracks from his recent Americanized records and the more melodic sounds that made him a household name in what is now his permanent country of residence. —Jason roChe
Willie Nelson
@ THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
Conservatives who claim to be outraged about Willie Nelson’s recent support for Beto O’Rourke, a politician running for a spot in the Texas Senate against incumbent Scrooge Ted Cruz, apparently haven’t fol- lowed the country singer’s career for the past half-century. While it remains to be seen if O’Rourke will turn out to be a genuine lib- eral icon or just another mainstream-lean- ing politician, Nelson has always had a soft spot for the underdog and the working
man. We’re lucky that Willie still performs so often, digging into his deep catalog of original classics and picking out nimble, intuitive runs on his guitar while crooning with that comforting, reassuring voice. Nelson’s family band headlines this Outlaw Music Festival, which also features his son Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Sturgill Simpson, former Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh and feisty country-rock chanteuse Margo Price. —Falling James
