Our Pick: Dr. Dog, Deer Tick, Pepi Ginsberg @ Henry Fonda Music Box
Tonight LA-based actress/musician Juliette Lewis will be gracing the Echo with none other than Parisian indie pop octet Tahiti Boy and the Palm Tree Family. LA-based electro pop duo Kisses, a small, newfangled splinter of Princeton (LAist Interview), are poised to perform in-store at Origami Vinyl, ringing in their forthcoming 7"—2010's Bermuda. And, lastly, LAist favorites Whispertown 2000 (LAist Review, #2) will be taking on the Silver Lake Lounge with female-fronted, bicoastal indie rock quintet, "both figuratively and technically," All Wrong and the Plans Change. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch Philadelphia's own psych rockers Dr. Dog (LAist Review). Rhode Island-based rockers Deer Tick and Brooklyn-bred singer-songwriter Pepi Ginsberg are slated to kick things off.

Tahiti Boy and the Palm Tree Family - "When I Speak"
