Our Pick: The Flaming Lips @ Ricardo Montalbán Theatre (Free! Sorta.)

Tonight iconic folk rock singer-songwriter Bob Dylan will be closing out a three-night stint at the Hollywood Palladium. Baltimore's crown jewel, electronic mastermind Dan Deacon (LAist Review) is poised to headline the Echo. And, lastly, South African experimental rockers BLK JKS, who have been heralded as the TV on the Radio of their hemisphere (and rightfully so), will be gracing Spaceland with none other than Costa Mesa-based psych rockers the Growlers in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Ricardo Montalbán Theatre to win a chance to see Oklahoma-bred psychedelic rock outfit the Flaming Lips.

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.
