Tonight In Rock: Gillian Welch, Foreign Born, Son Volt, The Very Best
Foreign Born will be playing tonight at the Hammer Museum | Photo by Emily Ulmer via Foreign Born's Myspace
Our Pick: Foreign Born, Warpaint @ Hammer Museum
Tonight Nashville-based bluegrass troubadour Gillian Welch will be performing with very special guests at Largo at the Coronet. Saint Louis-bred alt-rockers Son Volt will be performing at the Wiltern, opening for none other than Canada's own Cowboy Junkies. And, lastly, the Very Best, a fledgling musical amalgam comprised of London based production duo Radioclit and Malawi-bred crooner Esau Mwamwaya, will be performing at the Echoplex with Rainbow^Arabia in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the UCLA's Hammer Museum to catch local indie rock outfit Foreign Born (LAist Review), who will be performing for this week's edition of Also I Like to Rock. LAist favorites Warpaint (LAist Review, #2, #3) 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 goes up every Sunday.
