Our Pick: The Henry Clay People's record release, Olin and the Moon, The Hectors @ Spaceland
Tonight local noise-infused rock outfit HEALTH will be headlining the Echoplex with none other than Houston-based noise-infused psych rock anomaly Indian Jewelry and LA-based lo-fi pop act Best Coast in tow. Former Dawes/Simon Dawes member, local singer-songwriter Blake Mills (LAist Review) is poised to grace Bordello in the outskirts of Downtown. And, lastly, Brooklyn quartet Suckers will be celebrating the release of their debut album, 2010's Wild Smile, performing for free in-store at Amoeba Music in Hollyweird. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch local indie rock outfit the Henry Clay People, who will be ringing in their latest effort—2010's Somewhere on the Golden Coast—which is set for release today via TBD Records. LAist favorites, LA-based alt-rockers Olin & the Moon (LAist Interview) 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.
