Tonight In Rock: Akron/Family, The Parson Red Heads, The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra, Learning Music
Learning Music will be playing tonight at Machine Project | Picture via Learning Music's Myspace
Our Pick: Learning Music @ Machine Project (1200 D North Alvarado St.)
Tonight Pennsylvania-bred experimental folk rock outfit Akron/Family will be performing at McCabe's, joining forces with Ben Harper and Howlin' Rain (LAist Review) for a "Tribute to Chris Darrow." LA's finest pop rockers the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to grace the Air Conditioned Supper Club in Venice. And, lastly, local indie rock act the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (LAist Review, #2) will be headlining the Dakota Live Music Lounge in Santa Monica. But we strongly suggest heading over to Machine Project in Echo Park to catch the launch of Learning Music's Music Monthly, a collaborative, subscription based album-a-month series. Bring a small instrument and prepare to jam with the man behind Learning Music, soft-spoken virtuoso John Wood.
