Tonight In Rock: Everlast, Conor Oberst, Robyn, The Felice Brothers

Our Pick: Indie 103 Presents: CLUB NME w/ Robyn (acoustic) @ Spaceland
Tonight LA is taking it easy. We've got the second night of Conor Oberst's sold-out two-date stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box. And Upstate NY-based folk rockers the Felice Brothers will be performing at the Troubadour with Deer Tick. But we suggest that you check out Swedish chanteuse Robyn at Spaceland. Having just finished opening for Madonna in Europe, the twenty-nine-year-old pop singer is, virtually, a full-fledged superstar. Yet, unfortunately, she has struggled to break through here in the States. So catch her infectious pop tunes, which will be toned down to acoustic renditions, before she gives up on us (and our poor taste in pop) altogether!
