Tonight In Rock: Fistful Of Mercy, Best Coast, Junip, Margot & The Nuclear So And So's
Junip will be performing tonight at the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater | Picture via Junip's Myspace
Our Pick: Junip, Sharon Van Etten @ The Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater
Tonight local rockers Fistful of Mercy, a fledgling supergroup consisting of Dhani Harrison, Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur, will be concluding a two-night stint at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever. LA-based lo-fi pop act Best Coast will be doing the same at the Troubadour. And, lastly, Indianapolis-based indie rockers Margot & the Nuclear So and So's will be headlining Echoplex. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater to catch Junip, an indie rock trio formed by critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter José González during his formative years.
