Tonight In Rock: Dirty Projectors, Four Tet, Emily Wells, Scout Niblett

Our Pick: Dirty Projectors with the Los Angeles Philharmonic @ Walt Disney Concert Hall
Tonight UK-bred electronic mastermind Four Tet will be taking on Echoplex, ringing in his latest tour de force—2010's There Is Love in You. Local classical-violinist-turned-singer-songwriter Emily Wells will be performing at the Getty Center, kicking off the series Saturday Nights at the Getty. And, lastly, English singer-songwriter Scoutt Niblett will be gracing Spaceland with LA-based garage rock outfit Dirt Dress. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown to experience Brooklyn's crown jewel, the erratic experimental indie rock collective known as Dirty Projectors (LAist Review), who will be performing alongside the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
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.
