Tonight In Rock: Dinosaur Jr., Dan Black, Butch Walker, Charlie Wadhams
Dan Black will be performing tonight at Cinespace | Picture via Dan Black's Myspace
Our Pick: Dan Black @ Cinespace
Tonight legendary Amherst-based rockers Dinosaur Jr. will be taking on the Troubadour. Georgia-bred singer-songwriter/producer Butch Walker is poised to ring in his latest endeavor—2010's I Liked it Better When You Had No Heart—the Hotel Café. And, lastly, LA-based singer-songwriter Charlie Wadhams will be warming up the stage for local folk troubadour Ferraby Lionheart (LAist Interview, Review) and alt-country troubadours Leslie and the Badgers. But we strongly suggest braving Cinespace in Hollyweird to catch London-based electro pop maestro Dan Black.
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.
