Tonight Levittown-bred rockers Brand New will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour with none other than Dios (LAist Interview, Review, #2) in tow. NY-based rapper Cage is poised to headline the El Rey Theatre. LAist favorites, Chicagoist-approved electro rock trio Hey Champ will be gracing Bardot before they make the big trek home. And, lastly, Brooklyn-based dance band and art/performance collective Men will be taking on Spaceland with San Franciscan electro pop act Hey Willpower. But we strongly suggest heading over to Out of Asia to catch Beach Dazed, FMLY's twelve hour celebration of Los Angeles' music and arts community. LAist favorites Busdriver (LAist Review, #2), Best Coast, RJD2, Voxtrot and Haim will be performing, among many others.
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.
