Tonight In Rock: Dan Auerbach, The Bird and the Bee, Asobi Seksu, Nico Vega
Mike Viola will be playing tonight at Largo at the Coronet | Picture via Mike Viola's Myspace
Our Pick: Mike Viola @ Largo at the Coronet (Little Room)
Tonight the Black Keys' front man Dan Auerbach will be headlining the El Rey Theatre. LA-based indie pop outfit the Bird and the Bee are poised to play the Tricot Showroom. New York's own shoegaze queen Asobi Seksu will be gracing the Troubadour. And, lastly, local indie rock trio Nico Vega are slated to open for the Von Bondies at the Roxy. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet. Not only will Rickie Lee Jones be rocking the main stage (with a very, very special guest we're told), but Boston-based ex-Candy Butcher front man Mike Viola will be playing in the Little Room.
