Our staff picks of the week:

@KRBronson recommends: I shudder at the thought of going back to college — unless it’s to visit the Loyola Marymount University campus on Sunday for KXLU Fest II. The free, all-ages, open-to-the-public, alcohol-free event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the O’Malley Lawn and features The Muffs, Tony Molina, La Sera, Colleen Green, HABITS and LMU student bands Hallie & The Husbands, Marzoña and Arms Akimbo.

@Seraphina_L recommends: Nikki Lane returns to L.A. in support of her latest album “All Or Nothin’.” She’ll be stopping by the Roxy on Sunday with support from Daniel Romano, Lindi Ortega and John Moreland.
