Tonight In Rock: Friendly Fires, Ferraby Lionheart, Mia Doi Todd, One Trick Pony
Friendly Fires will be performing tonight at the Roxy | Picture via Friendly Fires' Myspace
Our Pick: Friendly Fires, Superhumanoids @ The Roxy
Tonight local folk troubadour Ferraby Lionheart (LAist Interview, Review) will be gracing the Satellite with none other than local "fancy pop" songstress Obi Best (LAist Interview, Review, #2) and local singer-songwriter Willoughby in tow. One of LAist's favorite local singer-songwriters, Mia Doi Todd is poised to perform at Footsie's in Cypress Park.
And, lastly, local indie rockers One Trick Pony will be taking on hole-and-corner Pehrspace. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to catch St. Albans-based dance pop outfit Friendly Fires (LAist Review), who are touring in support of their yet-to-be-released sophomore album—2011's Pala. LAist favorites, local indie pop quartet Superhumanoids are slated to kick things off.
Friendly Fires - "Skeleton Boy"
Superhumanoids - "Contemporary Individual"
