Our Pick: Holly Miranda, Yellow Red Sparks, Big Moves @ Bootleg Theater

Tonight local psych-infused indie rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (LAist Interview) will be headlining the Echoplex with Athens' own garage rock revivalists the Whigs in tow, ringing in their first full length in over two years—2010's Beat The Devil's Tattoo. LA-bred indie rock outfit the Happy Hollows (LAist Review, #2, #3) is poised to grace the Troubadour. And, lastly, San Francisco-by-way-of-Santa Cruz psych-tinged rock sextet Sleepy Sun will be performing at the Echo with none other than local rock and roll outfit Slang Chickens. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch burgeoning LA-based jazz-infused indie rock act Big Moves. Buzz-worthy Brooklyn-bred singer-songwriter Holly Miranda is slated to headline.

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.
