...bring a flask, 'cause all they've got are tea and Sour Patch Kids.

So, I was all ready to promote the Green Milk From the Planet Orange/Old Time Relijun show at The Smell (L.A.) this Saturday, when it occurred to me that the show is happening March 10 and not February 10. I am, in fact, a bit of an idiot.

However, I'm all about The Smell - the all-ages venue that is a rotting warehouse in a sketchy, smelly alley around the corner from Skid Row - and tomorrow night, there will be a show just as worthwhile as an Old Time Relijun performance. It's a benefit show to help pay the medical expenses of Mika Miko member Jessie Clavin (though zero internet sources will state what exactly this medical care is for...hmm...).

Behold!

Mika Miko
Abe Vigoda
Ima Fucking Gymnist
Vomit Bomb (ex-members of Jazz Thieves and Western Subject)
Dean Spunt (member of No Age and ex-member of Wives)
Wicked City Women (ex-members of This Mess)

$5 if you come all bandaged up
$7 if you come normal
8:00 p.m....plus $5 haircuts!

Also check The Smell's website for upcoming shows. They're cheap 'n noisy, and they've got a swell zine rack next to a swell bookcase next to a swell mixtape exchange box.

The Smell:

247 S. Main Street (alley between 2nd and 3rd)
Los Angeles, CA 90012
