Hopefully you have made a full recovery from your Memorial Day Weekend misbehavior because starting today, there are concerts going down every night this week that would be such a shame to miss. From Portugal. The Man getting down with some audio-visual psychedelia tonight to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers rocking a six-night residency at The Fonda Theatre, there is so much musical goodness to get in on. We've gathered it all for you here in this handy guide to L.A.'s best live music this week, so get up and go see a show, dammit! [Tame Impala via]
David Karp, the 26-year-old founder of Tumblr, sold his site to Yahoo! in an all-cash deal yesterday for $1.1 billion. The high school dropout has undoubtedly done well for himself, the deal making him one of the wealthiest and most successful techies under the age of 30. The native New Yorker will stay on as CEO and we're excited to see where he takes the website next. Check out our Daily Style Phile of Karp to find out more behind the scenes facts about the founder.

Even though our city's G-Men are not bringing home the ring this year, the crowds are still guaranteed to be out in full force. On Sunday, die-hard football fans will watch the season come to an end as the Baltimore Ravens face the San Francisco 49ers. Here is a roundup of some of the best places to watch the big game (and for some of the commercials and Destiny Child's rumored reunion) in the city.

Hey boys, the girls got a new club and you better listen up! Chances are you know many of the big names on TheLi.st – a new start-up that serves as "a platform for awesome women" according to its founders, Rachel Sklar and Glynnis MacNicol. It's a group that has grown from a small table at Tom & Jerry’s bar to a veritable power list of women over 400 strong.
“There’s a lot money to be made on taking women seriously,” explained Rachel in TheLi.st's new Manhattan office. “That’s actually a quote from Cindy Gallop (of the infamous TED talk Make Love Not Porn, another well-known crusader for women), and we have used it over and over again.” Rachel and Glynnis have been sharing women’s stories in the media for the better part of the last decade, and now they are formally giving them a club to support and connect to one another. It’s an “old boys club” for women – but it’s not on a golf course, it’s online, and it’s helping to get girls, women and mothers interested, engaged, and even funded in the tech space. Powerful men are taking notice and getting on board - they have figured out that women are a good investment. Angel investor and Barbarian Group co-founder Rick Webb is an adviser and "mega supporter of women"; the NYTimes' Nick Bilton wants in on the 'Friends of TheLi.st list', and guys like The Daily's Greg Clayman, David Pakman of Venrock, CNN's Jonathan Wald and Lean Startup's Eric Ries are champions and supporters.
