Our Pick: 2nd Annual Longhair Illuminati Arts & Music Festival w/ Tweak Bird, Warpaint, VOICEsVOICEs, Jel & Odd Nosdam, Living Suns, Blank Blue, 60 Watt Kid, DJ Nobody, Slang Chickens, Spirit Vine, Casket Salesmen, Green & Wood and more @ Knitting Factory
Tonight local indie rock buzz band Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' (LAist Review) will be performing at the Abbot Kinney Music Festival with Eskimo Hunter, the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) , Chief and Dios (Malos) (LAist Interview, Review). San Francisco-based psych-folk-pop act the Dodos are poised to headline the El Rey Theatre with Auckland's own indie pop outfit the Ruby Suns and London-bred experimental post-rock collective Sian Alice Group in tow. And, lastly, Sacramento-based dance-infused punk act Chk Chk Chk (!!!) will be headlining the Troubadour with none other than Houston-based psych-infused noise anomaly Indian Jewelry. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Knitting Factory in Hollywood to catch Berkeley-bred hip hop producer and rapper Jel and labelmate Odd Nosdam, who will be performing amongst many others for the 2nd Annual Longhair Illuminati Arts & Music Festival. LAist favorites Tweak Bird, Warpaint (LAist Review, #2, #3), Blank Blue and Slang Chickens are slated to take stage as well.
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.
