Our Pick: Black Mountain, Lower Heaven @ Bootleg Theater

Tonight former Nickel Creek member, virtuosic Oceanside-bred mandolin player Chris Thile will be gracing Largo at the Coronet. Local indie rockers Radars to the Sky (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to ring in their debut disc, 2010's Supra / Infra at Spaceland. And, lastly, local prolific songwriter John Wood, who performs under the pseudonym Learning Music, will be continuing his residency at Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch Canadian psych rock troupe Black Mountain, who are poised to release their third studio-album—2010's Wilderness Heart— via Jagjaguwar this coming September. LAist favorites, Baltimore-based quartet Lower Dens are slated to kick things off.
