Tonight In Rock: Giant Sand, Mike Watt & The Secondmen, Sherwood, Bang Camaro
Guy Fantastico will be opening for Juliette Commagere tonight at Tangier Restaurant | Picture via Guy Fantastico's Myspace
Our Pick: Juliette Commagere, Guy Fantastico, Life Underwater @ Tangier Restaurant
There is a plethora of shows tonight in LA. But none of them really spark our interest. Tucson-based indie rockers Giant Sand will be headlining the Echo. Our good friend Mike Watt is scheduled to perform at Harold's Place in San Pedro. And to top the night off, we've got Dub Club at the Echoplex and Club NME at Spaceland. However, we suggest heading over to Tangier to watch Guy Fantastico's debut performance. The twenty-something singer-songwriter, who once fronted the LA-based alt-rock band Acute, will be testing out songs from his forthcoming solo record, Nesting, which was produced and recorded by none other than Bobby Birdman.
