Tonight In Rock: Flying Lotus, Nicole Simone, Nurses, Dirt Dress
Nurses will be performing tonight at the Echo | Photo by Nilina Mason-Campbell via Nurses' Myspace
Our Pick: Spindrift, Nurses, Magic Mirror @ The Echo
Tonight local electronic mastermind Flying Lotus will be performing in-store at Amoeba Music in Hollyweird in celebration of his latest tour-de-force—2010's Cosmogramma. LA-based singer-songwriter Nicole Simone, who recently released an EP featuring Jason Schwartzman, is poised to grace the Bootleg Theater with none other than Paige Stark. And, lastly, LA-based garage rock outfit Dirt Dress will be taking on 3 Clubs with Mississippi Man for Future Sounds' 'the Rumble.' But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch local psych-rockers Spindrift. LAist favorites, Portland-based indie rock outfit Nurses, who had been forced to cancel their previous two debut LA performances, will finally be performing in our lovely city.
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.
