Our Pick: Annuals, The Most Serene Republic, What Laura Says @ SpacelandTonight Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird (LAist Review) will be concluding a two-night stint at Largo at the Coronet. Local electronic mastermind Flying Lotus is poised to conclude his two-night record release stint at the Echoplex with none other than San Diego-bred DJ the Gaslamp Killer and Las Vegas-by-way-of-San Diego rapper/singer/DJ Gonjasufi in celebration of his latest tour-de-force—2010's Cosmogramma. And, lastly, Minneapolis-bred chamber-pop singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith will be performing at the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch Canadian indie rockers the Most Serene Republic, who are touring in support of their third EP to date—2010's Fantasick Impossibliss. LAist favorites, Raleigh's own indie pop outfit the Annuals (LAist Interview, Review) will be performing as well.
