Tonight In Rock: Andrew Bird, Flying Lotus, Oliver Future, The Finches
Our Pick: Flying Lotus' record release, Ras G, Samiyam, Dr. Strangeloop, Kutmah, Jeremiah Je @ Echoplex
Tonight Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird (LAist Review) will be kicking off a two-night stint at Largo at the Coronet. LA-based indie rock trio Oliver Future are poised to ring in their latest endeavor—2010's In Event of Moon Disaster—at the Bootleg Theater. And, lastly, San Franciscan pop folk act the Finches will be gracing the Smell in Downtown, ushering in their latest 8-song collection—2010's On Golden Hill. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Echoplex to catch local electronic mastermind Flying Lotus, who is, of course, celebrating the release of his latest tour-de-force—2010's Cosmogramma; It should also be noted that tonight he will be premiering a very special, newfangled live band. LAist favorite, local DJ/producer Ras G will be performing as well.
