Tonight In Rock: Empire Of The Sun, The Joy Formidable, Evan Voytas, Judson And Mary
The Joy Formidable will be performing tonight at the Bootleg Theater | Picture via the Joy Formidable's Myspace
Our Pick: The Joy Formidable, Division Day, The Arkells @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight Australian electro pop duo Empire of the Sun, which is of course composed of Luke Steele of the Sleepy Jackson and Nick Littlemore of Pnau, will be kicking off a four-night stint at the Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater. Local electro pop singer-songwriter Evan Voytas is poised to perform for free at the West Los Angeles Civic Center Bandshell. And, lastly, Echo Park-based folk duo Judson and Mary will be gracing Three Clubs in Hollyweird. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch London-by-way-of-North Wales indie pop trio the Joy Formidable, who recently released their debut EP—2010's A Balloon Called Moaning. LAist favorites, local indie rock act Division Day (LAist Review, #2, #3) are slated to perform as well.
The Joy Formidable - "Cradle"
Empire of the Sun - "Walking on a Dream"
