Cotton Jones

Our Pick: Cotton Jones, The Parson Red Heads, Linda Draper @ Spaceland

Tonight legendary East Bay punk rockers Green Day will be headlining a sold-out show at the Henry Fonda Music Box. Local hip hop duo Brother Reade (LAist Interview, Review) is poised to grace Space 15 Twenty with none other than Illa J, the younger brother of late producer James Yancey (aka Jay Dee, J Dilla). And, lastly, LA-based indie rockers Fol Chen will be headlining the Echo with Kárin Tatoyanand Wait.Think.Fast in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch the phoenix that rose from the ashes of Page France, Cumberland, Maryland-based indie folk act Cotton Jones. LAist favorites the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) are slated to kick things off.
