Our Pick: Jimmy Webb @ Largo at the Coronet
Tonight legendary Beach Boys front man Brian Wilson (LAist Interview, Review) will be performing at the Wiltern. Deep-blues troubadour William Elliott Whitmore is slated to play to a sold-out crowd at the El Rey Theatre with City and Colour. The rather prolific Charlotte-based singer-songwriter Benji Hughes will be gracing the stage at Spaceland for this week's edition of Club NME. Recent Kemado Records signees the Soft Pack (formerly known as the Muslims) will be rocking out at the Echo early in the night. The Silver Lake Lounge is hosting a handful of exemplary local acts like Divisadero, Tigers Can Bite You and the French Semester. And, lastly, Foreign Born side project Big Search will be coming through Three Clubs in Hollyweird. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet to catch Oklahoma-bred singer-songwriter Jimmy Webb.
