Our Pick: We Barbarians, Red Cortez, LA Ghost, Pacific Hurt @ Spaceland (FREE!)

Tonight English alternative rockers Athlete will be headlining the Troubadour, touring in support of their fourth studio-album—2009's Black Swan. Echo Park's own electro dance duo Rainbow Arabia are poised take on the Echo yet again, with LA-based experimental punk outfit Abe Vigoda in tow. And, lastly, Long Beach-based indie rockers We Barbarians will be performing with local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) and Pacific Hurt, formerly known as Santa Ana-based indie rockers Aushua at Spaceland. But we strongly suggest heading over to Bardot to catch our dear friend, local singer-songwriter Kenneth Pattengale, who will be performing for this week's edition of School Night.

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.
