The Watkins Family Hour w/ Fiona Apple

The Watkins Family Hour will be playing at Largo at the Coronet | Picture via the Watkins Family Hour's Myspace

Our Pick: The Watkins Family Hour w/ Tom Brosseau and special guests @ Largo at the Coronet $20

Tonight legendary Miami-based hip hop group 2 Live Crew will be performing at the Key Club in Hollywood. Hermosa Beach's own punk rockers Pennywise are poised to headline Club Nokia in Downtown with Kailua Kona-based rock-reggae act Pepper in tow. And, lastly, local singer-songwriter Meiko will be making a relatively last minute appearance at the Hotel Café alongside Butterfly Boucher and Carina Round. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet for Watkins Family Hour (LAist Review). As mentioned previously, local Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Fiona Apple, Tom Brosseau and actor John C. Reilly, among a few other surprise guests, are slated to jam with former Nickel Creek fiddler Sara Watkins (LAist Interview) and her guitar-toting brother Sean (LAist Interview).
