Everest will be playing tonight at the Echo | Photo by Koga for LAist

Our Pick: Everest, The Parson Red Heads, Two Sheds @ The Echo

Tonight Baltimore-based psych rockers Animal Collective will conclude their sold-out two-date stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box, effectively making up for the prior cancellations. Local producer/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Review) is poised to jam with friends at Largo at the Coronet. And, lastly, LAist favorites Mike Watt & the Secondmen will be headlining Spaceland. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch local alt-rock heroes Everest (LAist Review, #2). LA-based pop rock outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) are slated to kick things off.
