Tonight In Rock: Gossip, Tegan And Sara, Melody Gardot, Olin & The Moon

Our Pick: Tegan and Sara, Laura Veirs @ Orpheum Theatre
Tonight Olympia-bred dance-infused rock act the Gossip will be headlining the Henry Fonda Music Box. LA-based alt-rockers Olin & the Moon (LAist Interview) are poised to take on the Echoplex. And, lastly, Philadelphia's own jazz singer-songwriter Melody Gardot (LAist Interview) will be gracing the Troubadour. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown to catch Portland-based songstress Laura Veirs, who will be opening for Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan and Sara.
Do not fret! Week In Rock will be up later today!
