Tonight in Rock: Bon Iver, Tristan Prettyman, Adele
Kraak & Smaak are, well... just that! They play at the Echoplex tonight | Photo via their MySpace page
Aquarium Drunkard, who was interviewed by LAist earlier this week, is presenting a show tonight at The Echo. They've dubbed the lineup as a "dream team": Bon Iver, Phosphorescent, and White Hinterland. If you can't head over to Echo Park, it's still quite a night in music tonight as you can see below. And as usual, there's not much on the Westside, but Bay Area based Bayonics will be grooving at the Temple Bar in Santa Monica. They'll be joined by the LA-based band, Sacha Sackett.
