Tonight In Rock: Brandon Flowers, Nobunny, Candy Claws, Papercranes
Papercranes will be performing tonight at Bardot | Picture via Papercranes' Myspace
Our Pick: Papercranes, The Moor, The Child @ Bordello
Tonight the Killers front man Brandon Flowers will be headlining the Wiltern with none other than Travis front man Fran Fealy. Oakland-based lo-fi garage punk visionary Justin Champlin, otherwise known as Nobunny, is poised to take on Spaceland with lo-fi post-punk rockers the Intelligence, which of course features A Frames drummer Lars Finberg. And, lastly, Colorado-based duo Candy Claws will be gracing the Bootleg Theater with fellow Coloradans the Chain Gang of 1974 in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to Bardot to catch Gainesville-based indie rock sextet Papercranes, which features actress/singer Rain Phoenix.
