Tonight in Rock: Le Loup, Groove Armada, Ninja Academy
Le Loup rocks it like Radiohead having babies with Arcade Fire. City Hall, where Groove Armarda is playing tonight, is a great space. And the Ninja Academy? "Ninja Academy say fuck off to unwritten musical rules while bringing a unique blend of overdriven, busy bass playing and a full-on drumming assault. The result is a simultaneous nod to punk, funk, jazz and metal that leaves audiences respectfully bowing to these aural black-belt masters," says Ryan Ritchie at the LA Weekly.
