Our Pick: The Henry Clay People's Record Release Party w/ The Parson Red Heads, Downtown/Union, Le Switch @ Spaceland
There are far too many shows to tend to tonight. First and foremost, experimental musician/producer extraordinaire David Byrne and Brian Eno will be performing together at the Greek Theatre in support of their first collaboration in nearly 30 years, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. LA locals No Age are slated to tear your ear drums apart at the dingy confines of the Smell. But why see them tonight when you can see them in exciting makeshift venues like the LA River or the Downtown Public Library? Devon Williams, yet another great LA-based musician, will be stopping by Echo Park's egalitarian start-up Echo Curio. The rather palatial Wiltern will be hosting the return of Portland legends the Dandy Warhols. Oddly enough, Brooklyn-based noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers are set to kick things in motion. Our only recommendation is to make sure you bring ear plugs! And lastly, speaking of noise, we've got Deerhoof at the Avalon with local favorites the Happy Hollows. But we heavily endorse plopping down at Spaceland to enjoy your Friday night. The Henry Clay People will be ringing in their latest effort, For Cheap Or For Free, with an impressive bill of bands, including two of our favorite LA acts: the Parson Red Heads and Le Switch. It'll surely be all things to all people.
