Kinch, Against Me!, a Primer on LA's Scene and More in this Week's Issue

Wondering what it was like on the road for Kinch as they played three January residencies in Los Angeles, San Diego and Scottsdale? I slept in my car and drank fancy beer to bring you the story from California in this week's print edition.

Speaking of Cali, Albert Ching, a Tempe native who now lives in LA and where he writes about music and comics, offers us a handy-dandy guide to LA's buzziest bands, including Abe Vigoda and No Age, who will both be in town this week at separate shows.

Dan Gibson talks to Against Me! about why no one loved their new record (except me, apparently) and about their show at Nile Theater in Mesa this weekend.

We've also got quick-hitters advancing The Father Figures, Dick Dale, The Handsome Family, Yann Tiersen, Keller Williams, The Ska Parade Tour, and Cash'd Out.
