Our Pick: When You Awake presents First Aid Kit, Samantha Crain, Whispertown 2000 @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight Santa Ana-based indie rockers Aushua, who have implemented a swift name change, calling themselves Pacific Hurt from here on out, will be taking on the Silver Lake Lounge with Fullerton-based garage rockers My Pet Saddle in tow. Local pop quintet Big Whup are poised to grace Spaceland. And, lastly, LA-based singer-songwriter Shane Alexander will be ringing in his latest endeavor at the Mint. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch First Aid Kit (Whispertown 2000 (LAist Review, #2)">LAist Review), a stripped-down, folk duo comprised of Swedish sisters who offer up some of the most saccharine harmonies you've ever laid ears on. LAist favorites Whispertown 2000 (LAist Review, #2) and Oklahoma-bred singer-songwriter Samantha Crain are slated to perform as well.
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.
First Aid Kit - "Tangerine"
Pacific Hurt (formerly Aushua) - "No Harm Done"
