Tonight In Rock: Andrew Bird, Thao & Mirah & the Most of All, We Barbarians, Evan Voytas
We Barbarians will be performing tonight at Spaceland | Picture via We Barbarians' Myspace
Our Pick: We Barbarians, Ezra Furman & the Harpoons, Tijuana Panthers, The Romany Rye @ Spaceland (FREE!)
Tonight Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird (LAist Review) will be concluding a two-night stint at Largo at the Coronet. Two of the most prominent women in indie folk rock, Mirah and Thao Nguyen, are poised to combine forces, backing one another at the Bootleg Theater in what will invariably be deemed a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And, lastly, local electro pop singer-songwriter Evan Voytas will be gracing the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch Long Beach-based indie rockers We Barbarians, who will be kicking off a free month-long residency. LAist favorites, Long Beach's own surf punk trio Tijuana Panthers (LAist Interview, Review), local folk rockers the Romany Rye and Chicagoan indie rock quartet Ezra Furman and the Harpoons are slated to perform as well.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.

Andrew Bird - "Why? (Live)"
