Tonight In Rock: Friendly Fires, Six Organs Of Admittance, Local Natives, Lower Heaven

Our Pick: Local Natives, The Parson Red Heads, The Cheat, Flying Tourbillon Orchestra @ Spaceland
Tonight St. Albans-based dance pop outfit Friendly Fires (LAist Review) will be performing for a sold-out crowd at the El Rey Theatre. Santa Cruz-bred new folk guitarist Ben Chasny, who performs under the pseudonym Six Organs of Admittance, will be taking on the Echo with Horse Thieves. And, lastly, Silver Lake-based psych rockers Lower Heaven will be continuing their month-long residency at the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch LAist favorites Local Natives (LAist Interview), who will invariably be conquering the penultimate night of their month-long residency. Local indie rockers the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (LAist Review, #2) and the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) will be performing as well.
