Tonight In Rock: Foo Fighters, The Notwist, Maylene & The Sons of Disaster, Red Cortez
The Notwist will be playing tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture via the Notwist's Myspace
Our Pick: The Notwist, Jel, Odd Nosdam @ The Henry Fonda Music Box
Tonight kicks off early with a performance by local garage rockers the Muslims at Amoeba Records on Sunset. Red Cortez, formerly known as the Weather Underground, will be playing their first night under the new moniker at the Silver Lake Lounge. We're guessing that they may have wanted to ditch the negative political associations. But that's pure conjecture on our part. And, lastly, the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age will be rocking out at the Avalon for the Blackberry Storm Party. It must have cost them a pretty penny to put together that bill. Tickets were made available earlier at random via text-only. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to witness German electro-pop sensation the Notwist. If our calculations are correct, the last time the group came through LA was Feb. 17, 2004. So don't miss out because we can't promise they'll be back for, oh, another four years. The Bay Area will be heavily represented with electronic mastermind Odd Nosdam and Anticon's own drum-pad master Jel as openers.
