Tonight LA-based pop duo Jupiter Rising are opening for boy band Boyz II Men at Club Nokia in Downtown. Hermosa Beach's own punk rockers Pennywise will be struttin' their machismo around a sold-out crowd with the Vandals at the Hollywood Palladium. Santa Cruz-by-way-of-Atlanta instrumental outfit Sound Tribe Sector 9 are headlining the Wiltern with electronic producer/musician extraordinaire Prefuse 73. San Diegan alt-rockers the Delta Spirit will be performing at the El Rey Theatre with LAist favorites Everest (LAist Review, #2). Latin rockers Ozomatli are headlining the Echoplex with Wait.Think.Fast in tow. And, lastly, Anticon's best emcee Sole is coming through the Knitting Factory. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Hotel Café to watch Theresa Andersson (LAist Interview) tear down the house with her one-woman band.
