Monday To-do: Aug. 1

Apparently, we just thought we knew what hot was. is tracking another intense heatwave this week which is expected to keep us in the triple digits all week long.

Specifically, today is set to see a high of 104 degrees and on Wednesday, temperatures could reach 106.

Don’t mess around with this weather, folks. It’s certainly not messing around with us. Stay cool and hydrated. OK?


There’s a rockabilly/psychobilly show at Rogue tonight with LA-based Straight-Razor Stalemate and Piss Broke Rebels. We stuck in a few videos below if you’re not sure what to expect.

There are a few other things on the calendar for tonight. Use your mouse/trackpad/touchscreen and scroll on down to see ’em.

Happy Birthday!
