Tonight In Rock: Dntel, Wild Beasts, Tim Kasher, Justin Townes Earle
Wild Beasts will be performing tonight at the Troubadour | Picture via Wild Beasts' Myspace
Our Pick: Wild Beasts, Still Life Still, Magic Bullets @ Troubadour
Tonight local electronic mastermind James Tamborello, otherwise known as Dntel, will be gracing the Airliner in Lincoln Heights. Nebraska-based Cursive front man Tim Kasher is poised to take on the Bootleg Theater with none other than famed New Jersey-bred acoustic troubadour Pete Yorn for 'A Haiti Benefit.' And, lastly, Nashville-based country singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle will be performing an in-store at Amoeba Music in Hollyweird. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch experimental English indie rockers Wild Beasts, who are currently embarking on their first North American tour.
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.
