Our Pick: The Western States Motel, Marching Band (From Sweden), The Boxing Lesson @ Spaceland

Tonight hometown hero Beck will be playing his second and final night at the virginal Club Nokia. As Buzzbands blogger Kevin Bronson tweeted early last night, "Club Nokia's *posh* -- nicer even than finding free street parking 5 blocks away." Memphis-based punk rocker Jay Reatard will be opening the show this time around. The crazy garage rock outfit known as King Khan & the BBQ Show will be stopping by the Echo with Seattle's the Dutchess & the Duke. LA locals The Monolators will be continuing their Monday Night Residency at the hole-and-corner Pehrspace. And, lastly, our personal favorites the Western States Motel (LAist Review, Interview) will be doing the same at Spaceland with Swedish indie rockers the Marching Band, who are scheduled to open the month-long residency. We've heard great things about the band, so head on over to Silverlake to catch them!
