Apollo Sunshine will be playing tonight at Spaceland | Picture via Apollo Sunshine's Myspace

Our Pick: Dead Confederate, Apollo Sunshine @ Spaceland

Tonight there are far too many shows to chose from. We've got the second and final night of pop songstress Alanis Morissette at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown. Nashville-based piano man Ben Folds is headlining the Wiltern. Jon Brion & Friends will be jamming at the Largo at the Coronet. SF-based noise rockers Deerhoof are slated to wreak havoc on all eardrums at the Echoplex. Local indie rockers the Little Ones are stopping through the Echo. And, of course, Sean Carlson (LAist Interview) of the Fuck Yeah Fest is up to no good again. This time around he's got Sweden's own the (International) Noise Conspiracy playing the tiny stage at the Eagle Rock Arts Center. If you aren't planning on a sweaty, good time, then we strongly suggest you check into Spaceland. Berklee College of Music alums Apollo Sunshine (LAist Interview) will be performing gleaming tunes from 2008's Shall Noise Upon with Athens-based rockers Dead Confederate.
