Tonight In Rock: Empire Of The Sun, Hercules And Love Affair, Red Cortez, Superhumanoids
Hercules and Love Affair will be performing live tonight at the Echoplex | Picture via Hercules and Love Affair's Myspace
Our Pick: Hercules and Love Affair @ Echoplex
Tonight Australian electro pop duo Empire of the Sun, which is of course features Luke Steele of the Sleepy Jackson, will be concluding a four-night stint at the Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater. Local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are poised to head a bill of talented locals for Bloomfest in the heart of the Arts District. And, lastly, local indie pop quartet Superhumanoids will be gracing HEARDfest, a fledgling music/arts festival which takes place at Junction Block and is organized by local collective Heard of Elephants. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch NY-based disco/house duo Hercules and Love Affair.
Hercules and Love Affair - "Blind"
Empire of the Sun - "Walking on a Dream"
