Monday 2.15 -Television
58th Annual GRAMMY Awards on CBS
Live from the Staples Center is the 58th annual GRAMMY awards. Hosted by LL Cool J, some of the expected highlights of the events include a David Bowie tribute by Lady Gaga, a Kendrick Lamar-Taylor Swift showdown, and a return to the big stage by queen Adele. We’re all crossing our fingers that Kanye will do something, too. It wouldn’t be an awards show without Mr. West interrupting someone, or pretending to interrupt someone or running for president. Tune in Monday from 5-8:30 p.m. PST on CBS. You can stream the event live at grammy.com/live or CBS.com.

Monday 2.22- Concert
DIIV w/ La Sera @ The Echo
Is it Monday already? This show is going to be your saving grace. DIIV, a 4-piece shoegaze band from Brooklyn, is celebrating new beginnings. Their February 6 release, Is The Is Are, is thematically redemptive, considering the last few years for Zachary Cole Smith and his bandmates were plagued by drug addictions, jail time and homelessness. La Sera, fronted by former Vivian Girl “Kickball” Katy Goodman, is an impossibly pristine blend of punk, jangly-pop and alt-country. Imagine a cross-pollination of Morrissey and The Pretenders.
