Tonight In Rock: Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, The Watkins Family Hour, Pink Mountaintops, White Arrows

Our Pick: Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, LA Ladies Choir, Frank Fairfield @ El Rey Theatre
Tonight the famed Watkins Family Hour (LAist Review) will be taking place at Largo at the Coronet. Vancouver-bred psych-infused rock outfit Pink Mountaintops are poised to take on the Echo with equally heady locals Xu Xu Fang (LAist Review, #2, #3). And, lastly, LA-based indie rockers White Arrows will be performing at the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the El Rey Theatre to catch local indie rock buzz band Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' (LAist Review). LAist favorites the LA Ladies Choir and Frank Fairfield are 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.
