Tonight In Rock: Fitz & The Tantrums, The Chicago Underground Duo, The Idyllists, Marvelous Toy
Fitz & the Tantrums will be performing tonight at the Echo | Picture via Fitz & the Tantrums' Myspace
Our Pick: Fitz & The Tantrums, Sweater Girls @ The Echo
Tonight Chicago-bred avant-garde jazz duo the Chicago Underground Duo will be headlining the Bootleg Theater with none other than experimental instrumentalists and labelmates Pit Er Pat and the Pity Party (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6). LA-based pop rock outfit the Idyllists will be ringing in their latest self-titled endeavor at the Hotel Café. And, lastly, local indie folk outfit Marvelous Toy will be performing at Spaceland, opening up for Shadow Shadow Shade (formerly known as the Afternoons). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch LAist favorites, local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums. LA-based indie rockers Sweaters are slated to kick things off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which generally goes up every Sunday.
