Our Pick: Alice Russell, Jesca Hoop @ The Hotel Café

Tonight pop songstress Alanis Morissette will be stopping by the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown. LA Locals West Indian Girl are continuing their residency at Spaceland. Long Island rockers Taking Back Sunday are playing the virginal Club Nokia with Sweden's own the (International) Noise Conspiracy. Prodigious art rockers And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead will be rocking out at the Echo. And, lastly, San Diego's Crocodiles, who are best known as the phoenix that rose from ashes of TPTBUTET and the Prayers, will be performing at the Smell—Yes, that is in fact Kristen Gundred of Grand Ole Party's hubby. But we suggest heading over to the Hotel Café to catch British chanteuse Alice Russell in action. She'll be belting out soulful notes in support of 2008's Pot Of Gold.
