Our non-Coachella Pick: Autolux, Franz Nicolay @ Bootleg Theater

Tonight Akron-bred folk rock singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur will be performing at the Stronghold on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach. Progressive bluegrass outfit the Punch Brothers, which of course features former Nickel Creek member, virtuosic Oceanside-bred mandolin player Chris Thile, will be performing at the Broad Stage in Santa Mon Mon. And, lastly, local rockers Autolux (LAist Review, #2) are poised to take on the Bootleg Theater.

Of course, there's that Coachella thing. Our picks for Day 1 are as follows:
