Tonight In Rock: Gillian Welch, Everest, These United States, The Minor Canon
Everest will be playing tonight at the Hammer Museum | Photo by Koga for LAist
Our Pick: Everest, Red Cortez @ Hammer Museum (Free!)
Tonight Nashville-based bluegrass singer-songwriter Gillian Welch will be gracing Largo at the Coronet. Washington D.C.-based alt-rockers These United States are poised to headline the Echoplex with LAist favorites Olin and the Moon (LAist Interview) in tow. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit the Minor Canon will be performing at the Silver Lake Lounge with his Orchestra. But we strongly suggest heading over to UCLA's Hammer Museum to catch local alt-rock act Everest (LAist Review, #2). LAist favorites Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2) 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.
