Tonight In Rock: Brandon Flowers, Darker My Love, The Parson Red Heads, Dead Meadow
Darker My Love will be performing tonight at the Bootleg Theater | Picture via Darker My Love's Myspace
Our Pick: Darker My Love's record release, Wounded Lion, My Pet Saddle @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight the Killers front man Brandon Flowers, who only recently announced that he would be embarking on the solo path, will be performing to a very sold-out house at Troubadour. Local indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are poised to take on Spaceland with none other than Cotton Jones in tow. And, lastly, LA-bred psych rockers Dead Meadow, who recently rung in their latest endeavor, 2010's feature-length film and soundtrack Three Kings, will be gracing the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch local psych rockers Darker My Love, who will be ringing in their third studio-album—2010's Alive As You Are.
