Tonight In Rock: CocoRosie, Mates of State, DâM-FunK, Fishtank Ensemble
Our Pick: CocoRosie, Cibelle, Busdriver @ The Orpheum Theatre
Tonight Kansas-bred indie pop duo Mates of States (LAist Review) will be kicking off a two-night stint at the Echo with none other than the City of Brotherly Love's rock and roll quintet Free Energy (LAist Interview). DâM-FunK, or rather the "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," is poised to take on the Troubadour with San Jose-bred DJ, hip-hop producer and founder of the hip-hop label Stones Throw Records, Peanut Butter Wolf. And, lastly, Oakland-bred Euro-American musical group Fishtank Ensemble will be performing for free at Levitt Pavillion in the heart of Pasadena. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown to catch French "freak folk" outfit CocoRosie, who are touring in support of their latest endeavor—2010's Grey Oceans. LAist favorites, local rapper Busdriver (LAist Review, #2) and Sao Paulo's self-proclaimed purveyor of tropical punk, Cibelle, are slated to kick thing off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.
