The Physics of Meaning will be playing tonight at Pehrspace | Picture via the Physics of Meaning's Myspace

Our Pick: The Minor Canon, The Physics of Meaning, One Trick Pony, Daniel Brummel @ Pehrspace

There are far too many good shows in LA tonight for any one music enthusiast. First and foremost, Bay Area indie rockers Facing New York and Orange-based Local Natives will be playing at the Troubadour. Sweden's own Graveyard will be performing at Spaceland with LA-based singer-songwriter Imaad Wasif. And Brooklyn-bred experimental rockers High Places will bring life to the drab interior of the Smell with LA locals Abe Vigoda and Baltimore-based Ponytail. It will be a night filled with endless sonic curiosity. But the hole-and-corner Pehrspace will play host to a loose-knit Durham-based collective, Daniel Hart's the Physics of Meaning. The violin virtuoso has lent his skills to St. Vincent, John Vanderslice and the Polyphonic Spree in times past. Now, Hart has a forthcoming sophomore effort, 2008's Snake Charmer & Destiny At The Stroke Of Midnight, to call his own. Don't miss out!
