Local Natives

Our Pick: Local Natives, The Union Line, The Outline, We Barbarians @ Spaceland (Free!)

Tonight English indie rockers Gomez will be headlining the Wiltern with Portland's own indie pop outfit Blind Pilot in tow. Costa Mesa-based psych rockers the Growlers are poised to kick off a month-long residency at the Echo. And, lastly, New Zealand-based singer-songwriter and Stellar* front woman Boh Runga will be gracing Largo at the Coronet. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch the first night of LAist favorites Local Natives' (LAist Interview) month-long residency. We Barbarians, the Union Line and the Outline will all be performing as well, with Justin Gage of Aquarium Drunkard on the decks in between bands. Yours truly will be DJing the final night of the aforementioned residency, August 31st.
