Tonight In Rock: Echo & The Bunnymen, Weezer, Islands, Kid Sister
Our Pick: Islands, Jemina Pearl, Toro Y Moi @ Troubadour
Tonight legendary English post-punk outfit Echo & the Bunnymen will be headlining the Nokia Theatre in Downtown. LA-bred Grammy Award-winning alternative rockers Weezer (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are poised to headline the Hollywood Palladium. And, lastly, Chicago-based rapper Kid Sister will be gracing the Echoplex with none other than Chicago's own DJ duo Flosstradamus and the Very Best, a fledgling musical amalgam comprised of London based production duo Radioclit and Malawi-bred crooner Esau Mwamwaya. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Québécois indie rock act Islands. LAist favorite Jemina Pearl, lead singer of acclaimed Nashville-based garage rock outfit Be Your Own Pet, is slated to kick things off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.
