Our Pick: Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Eskimohunter @ Hammer Museum (Free!)
Tonight San Diegan singer-songwriter Anya Marina (LAist Review, #2) will be opening for Eric Hutchinson at the El Rey Theatre. LA-based singer-songwriter Robert Francis is poised to grace the Roxy with local blues-rock duo Rumpsringa (LAist Review, #2) in tow. And, lastly, Spirit Animal, otherwise known as the Gray Kid's latest full-fledged band endeavor, will be performing at Spacelandwith locals Tigers Can Bite You and Robotanists. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into UCLA's Hammer Museum to catch LA-based indie rockers Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros (LAist Review). LAist favorites Eskimohunter 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.
