Tonight In Rock: Blitzen Trapper, Tame Impala, The Parson Red Heads, Nicole Simone

Our Pick: Blitzen Trapper, The Moondoggies @ El Rey Theatre
Tonight Australian psych rock quartet Tame Impala will be concluding their LA debut, headlining the Silver Lake Lounge in support of their studio debut—2010'sInnerspeaker. Local indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are poised to take on Spaceland. And, lastly, local singer-songwriter Nicole Simone, who recently released an EP featuring none other than Jason Schwartzman, will be performing at the Hotel Café. But we strongly suggest heading over to El Rey Theatre to catch Portland's own experimental rock sextet Blitzen Trapper (LAist Interview). LAist favorites, Seattle-based folk rock quartet the Moondoggies are slated to kick things off.
