Our Pick: Akron/Family, Howlin' Rain, Lucky Dragons @ El Rey Theatre

Tonight the principal architect of P-Funk, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic (LAist Review), will be performing at Club Nokia in Downtown. Grammy-nominated pop singer Katy Perry (LAist Review, #2) is poised to headline the Hollywood Palladium with none other than local indie pop duo the Bird and the Bee (LAist Review, #2). And, lastly, Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cincinnati indie rock act the National will be taking on the Wiltern with California-bred folk rocker Cass McCombs in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the El Rey Theatre to catch NY-based experimental folk rock outfit Akron/Family. LAist favorites Howlin' Rain (LAist Review) and Lucky Dragons are slated to kick things off.

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