Our Pick: Chris Thile @ Largo at the Coronet

Tonight local "fancy pop" songstress Obi Best (LAist Interview, Review, #2) will be gracing the Echo, warming up the stage for Walking Sleep, the venerable local indie rock outfit formerly known as the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (LAist Review, #2, #3). LA-by-way-of-Chicago indie rock quartet Helen Stellar will be concluding their month-long residency at Spaceland with none other than LA-based indie pop quartet Robotanists. And, lastly, Long Beach-bred one-man band Nima Kazeroun, who performs under the pseudonym So Many Wizards, is poised to take on the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet to catch former Nickel Creek member, virtuosic Oceanside-bred mandolin player Chris Thile.
