Tonight in Rock: Ting Tings, Matthew Good, Old Man River
The Makers play every Tuesday at Seven Grand
What a great night for music in Los Angeles. From The Ting Tings (Tony Pierce's Soundboard write-up) to Matthew Good (about | album review) to The Makers, who we just added to our March Residency Guide. If you're not looking to go out to a show-show tonight, but plan on going out socially, The Makers are fantastically incredible and play every Tuesday night at Seven Grand downtown (Why hasn't KCRW picked up on them yet?). Also, Aussie rockers Old Man River plays one more night in Los Angeles after last night at Spaceland.
