Tonight In Rock: Empire Of The Sun, Wild Beasts, These United States, Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba
Our Pick: Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba, Dengue Fever @ California Plaza (FREE! 8 PM)
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 taking on the penultimate night of a four-date stint at the Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater. LAist favorites, experimental English indie rockers Wild Beasts are poised to take on the El Rey Theatre. And, lastly, Washington D.C.-based alt-rock collective These United States will be taking on Spaceland with none other than San Franciscan alternative country outfit Or, The Whale. But we strongly suggest heading over to California Plaza in Downtown to catch a free performance by Mali-based musician Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba. LAist favorites, local Cambodian rock outfit Dengue Fever (LAist Interview, Review) are slated to perform as well.
