Mobb Deep, Axl Rose

If you observed the glorious made-up holiday yesterday known as National Absinthe Day, a) good for you and best of luck recovering, and b) we totally feel you on not trying to hit the bottle (or the club) too hard this week. But in no way are we suggesting you stay in the rest of the week because there are too many good shows going down all over town between now and Monday. From Mobb Deep to Guns N' Roses, we've selected the best upcoming music happenings in L.A., so sit back and check out our guide to the live shows not to be missed this week.
