Our Pick: Oona, Bullet and Snowfox, Big Moves @ Silver Lake Lounge

Tonight, tonight ... famed Chicagoan alternative rockers the Smashing Pumpkins will be performing at the Viper Room. Canadian indie rockers Hot Hot Heat will be concluding their seemingly endless residency at the Bootleg Theater. Philadelphia's own psych rockers Dr. Dog (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Hotel Café in celebration of their seventh studio album—2010's Shame, Shame. And, lastly, Seattle's own indie rock singer-songwriter Damien Jurado, touring on his ninth studio album, 2010's Richard Swift-produced Saint Bartlett, will be gracing Spaceland with none other than Seattle-bred indie rock outfit Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground (the phoenix that rose from the ashes of Gatsby's American Dream), Texan folk maestros Tenlons Fort (LAist Review, #2, #3), and Hi Ho Silver Oh. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Silver Lake Lounge to catch LA-based jazz-infused indie rock act Big Moves.

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.
