Not that we can really complain about winter weather in L.A., but it's nevertheless nice to have it officially be spring, right? That extra sunlight in the afternoon encourages people to drink outdoors, wear shorts to work, and, of course, to go out more on weeknights. Luckily, there are plenty of places to go, as this week is packed with a wide variety of live music, from country legends, to up-and-coming rappers, to an actress with surprising rock and roll chops. So get off the couch, scrap your boring plans, and go see a show!
