Tonight In Rock: Blink 182, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Airborne Toxic Event, Timber Timbre
Timber Timbre will be performing tonight at the Silver Lake Lounge | Picture via Timber Timbre's Myspace
Our Pick: Timber Timbre, The Minor Canon, The Street and Babe Shadow, What Laura Says @ Silver Lake Lounge
Tonight legendary Poway-bred pop punk outfit Blink 182 will be headlining the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater with none other than Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Asher Roth. NY-based alternative rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Greek Theatre with Portland's own experimental electronic duo YACHT and celebrated alternative rockers the Breeders in tow. And, lastly, Los Feliz-bred Top 40 maestros the Airborne Toxic Event will be performing at the Pomona Fox Theater with none other than hometown heroes Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2) and the the Henry Clay People (Review, #2, #3, #4). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Silver Lake Lounge to catch Toronto-based folk rock outfit Timber Timbre. Local indie rock act the Minor Canon and Arizona-based rock quintet What Laura Says are slated to kick things off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which (generally) goes up every Sunday.
