On Friday frequent LA Weekly contributor Jeff Weiss throws the first in a series of "Passion of the Weiss presents..." shows at Spaceland.

The inaugural fete is headlined by L.A. via Nawlins garage-rap duo the Knux, with support from Philly noir-hoppers 5 O'Clock Shadowboxers and local psych band the Holloys.

Oh, and the Low End Theory's resident master of ceremonies, Nocando (read Weiss' feature), an extremely gifted emcee who's recorded a new song in honor of the occasion.

The show starts at 9 p.m. -- ticket info here.

We're told that the genre-bending Knux will be doing some classic rock/punk covers -- maybe Neil Young, perhaps some Stooges -- as well as unveiling some songs from their forthcoming album on Interscope.

Without futher ado, here's Nocando's "Old Friend." Nab a few more free MP3s, as well as the quite good 5 O'Clock Shadowboxers EP, at Weiss' blog, Passion of the Weiss.

    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
