Tonight In Rock: Dave Rawlings Machine, Laura Marling, Imaad Wasif, Horse Thieves
Laura Marling will be performing tonight at Largo at the Coronet | Picture via Laura Marling's Myspace
Tonight Rhode Island-bred bluegrass singer-songwriter/guitarist Dave Rawlings, who is best known as bluegrass troubadour Gillian Welch's longtime musical partner, will not only be performing at Amoeba Music, but at the Troubadour as well. LA-based folk rock singer-songwriter Imaad Wasif is poised to grace Spaceland with none other than Dead Meadow front man Jason Simon and Mockingbirds, which contains members of local post-rock act Red Sparowes. And, lastly, LA-based alt-country outfit Horse Thieves will be taking on the Echo. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet to catch LAist favorite, English folk singer-songwriter Laura Marling.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which generally goes up every Sunday.
