Richard Swift

Tonight St. Albans-based dance pop outfit Friendly Fires (LAist Review) will be performing for a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour with Hockey in tow. LAist favorites the Henry Clay People (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are poised to take on Spaceland with the Broken West (LAist Review). Local afro-centric pop rockers Fool's Gold will be gracing the Echo as a party of a stellar bill that includes Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, as well as Glasser. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock to catch Oregonian singer-songwriter Richard Swift. San Franciscan folk rockers Vetiver are slated to headline.

You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which appears every Sunday.
