Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, The Get Up Kids, Busdriver, Alex & Sam

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Our Pick: First Fridays w/ Busdriver, Tim Fite @ Natural History Museum

Tonight local multi-instrumentalist/producer Jon Brion (LAist Review) will be jamming with friends at Largo at the Coronet. Legendary Kansas City-based indie rockers the Get Up Kids are poised to perform to a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour. And, lastly, LA-based jazz-infused pop duo Alex & Sam (LAist Interview, Review) will be gracing Home Restaurant in Silver Lake. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Natural History Museum to catch Busdriver (LAist Review, #2), who will be letting out his glib flow for this month's edition of First Fridays.
