Tonight In Rock: Bon Iver, Rain Machine, Telefon Tel Aviv, Portugal. The Man

Our Pick: Telefon Tel Aviv, The Race @ Spaceland
Tonight Wisconsin-bred folk singer-songwriter Justin Vernon, otherwise known as Bon Iver (LAist Review), will be performing at the Wiltern with none other than Durham's own Megafaun. Brooklyn-bred TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone is poised to stop through the Echo with his solo endeavor Rain Machine. And, lastly, Wasilla's own rock outfit Portugal. The Man will be headlining the Troubadour with Cambridge-based rock duo Drug Rug. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch Telefon Tel Aviv, a Chicago-based experimental electronic duo that experienced the unexpected passing of one of its two members—Charles Cooper—at the beginning of the year.
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.
