Tonight In Rock: DâM-FunK, Themselves, Firs, The Movies

Our Pick: DâM-FunK, Thavius Beck @ The Airliner
Tonight Oakland-based experimental hip hop duo Themselves will be headlining Spaceland. LA-based indie rock outfit Firs will be performing at the Bootleg Theatre. And, lastly, LAist favorites, local fringe rock outfit the Movies (LAist Review, #2) will be taking on Bordello in Downtown. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Airliner in Lincoln Heights to catch Los Angeles' own "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," Culver City-based DJ/selector DâM-FunK, who will be ringing in his debut LP—Toeachizown Vol. 1: LAtrik—with none other than local electronic musician/producer/MC Thavius Beck.
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.
