Brendan Benson will be performing tonight at the Troubadour | Picture via Brendan Benson's Myspace
Our Pick: Brendan Benson @ Troubadour
Tonight Grammy Award-nominated Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto will be sharing the stage at the Hollywood Bowl with none other than Brazilian singer-songwriter Seu George. Local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums are poised to grace the Greek Theatre. And, lastly, Dhani Harrison's thenewno2, among many other prominent acts, will be performing at the Sunset Strip Music Festival. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Raconteurs guitarist, Michigan-bred singer-songwriter Brendan Benson.
