Our Pick: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros @ Amoeba Music (Early Show; 7 PM)
Tonight local electronic mastermind Nosaj Thing is poised to headline the Airliner in Lincoln Heights. LA-via-Tel Aviv transplant Luke Top—otherwise known as Fool's Gold front man—will be gracing Spaceland with English rockers the Veils for this week's edition of Club NME. And, lastly, local psych rock outfit Xu Xu Fang (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to headline Three Clubs. But we strongly suggest heading over to Amoeba Music to catch Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (LAist Review), who will be ringing in their forthcoming debut Up From Below.
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.
