Tonight In Rock: Clipse, Dios, Lissie, Mia Doi Todd
Dios will be performing tonight at the Troubadour | Picture via Dios' Myspace
Our Pick: Dios' record release, The Henry Clay People, Signals @ Troubadour
Tonight critically acclaimed Virginia Beach-bred hip hop duo Clipse will be performing at the Roxy in Hollyweird. Rock Island-based alternative country singer-songwriter Lissie is poised to grace the Hotel Café. And, lastly, one of LAist's favorite local singer-songwriters, one Mia Doi Todd will be gracing Spaceland yet again—this time with Lavender Diamond front woman Becky Stark in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch San Pedro-based indie rockers Dios (LAist Interview, Review, #2), who will be ringing in their endeavor—2010's We Are Dios. LAist favorites, Signals (LAist Review) and the Henry Clay People (Review, #2, #3, #4) are slated to kick things off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which (generally) goes up every Sunday.
