Our Pick: Eyedea and Abilities, Dosh, Silent Army @ Echoplex
Tonight British indie rockers Editors will be headlining the Wiltern with none other than Brooklyn-bred indie rock trio the Antlers in tow. Portland-based indie rockers the Thermals (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Troubadour with none other than San Franciscan folk rockers Thao with the Get Down Stay Down and LA-bred rock and roll outfit Slang Chickens. And, lastly, Nashville-based country singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle will be performing at the Echo with LAist favorite, Chicago-based singer-songwriter Joe Pug (LAist Interview) in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch Minneapolis-based multi-instrumentalist Dosh (LAist Review). St. Paul's own hip hop duo Eyedea and Abilities are slated to perform as well.
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.
