Our Pick: White Rabbits, The Subjects @ Troubadour
Tonight English/German indie rockers Art Brut will be continuing a three night stint at Spaceland with Rumspringa (LAist Review, #2) and Voxhaul Broadcast in tow. Brooklyn-based indie pop act Chairlift (LAist Review), who gained popularity through those (goddamn) lurid Apple commercials, are poised to grace the Echo with Fool's Gold front man Luke Top. And, lastly, local rapper Busdriver (LAist Review, #2) will be headlining the Knitting Factory's Main Stage in celebration of his forthcoming disc, 2009's Jhelli Beam. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch NYC-based indie rock sextet White Rabbits. LAist favorites the Subjects are slated to kick things off.
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.
