Tonight In Rock: Conor Oberst, Tigers Can Bite, Light FM, Mike Watt
The Like will be opening for Conor Oberst tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture via the Like's Myspace
Our Pick: Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, The Like, All Smiles @ The Henry Fonda Music Box (Sold-Out)
Tonight Radio Free Silver Lake will be presenting a CD release party at Boardner's for not one, but two great local bands. Tigers Can Bite You and Light FM will be celebrating and the French Semester will be opening. Whispertown 2000 (LAist Review) will be playing at Amoeba early on. And, lastly, Mike Watt We wouldn't usually recommend going to see Conor Oberst at the Henry Fonda Music Box, but LA-based folk rockers the Like will be opening. And we must admit that this band of ladies is a rather prepossessing sight.
