Our Pick: Of Montreal, HEALTH @ Hollywood Palladium

Tonight the "Queen of Soul," Aretha Franklin, will conclude a two-night stint at the House of Blues Sunset. Old 97's front man Rhett Miller is stopping through the Largo at the Coronet. Swedish metal band In Flames will be shredding at Club Nokia. And, lastly, NY-based folk rockers O'Death are sharing the stage at Spaceland with some great local bands, Le Switch and Death to Anders. But we suggest plopping down at the newly renovated Hollywood Palladium to experience Of Montreal. The last time the prolific Athens-based indie pop act played here, nearly a year ago to the date, "I felt like I was tripping on acid." LA's own noise rock troupe HEALTH (LAist Review) will be opening.
