Our Pick: Janelle Monae, Bruno Mars @ The Viper Room

Tonight iconic Japanese psych rockers Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. will be headlining the Echoplex with none other than Portland-based experimental rock outfit Nice Nice. New Jersey-bred lo-fi kings Titus Andronicus are poised to take on the Bootleg Theater with in local rock and roll outfit Slang Chickens tow. And, lastly, Danish indie pop outfit the Asteroids Galaxy Tour will be headlining the Echo. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Viper Room in Hollyweird to catch Kansas City-bred Grammy Award-nominated pop singer-songwriter Janelle Monae.

You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which (generally) goes up every Sunday.
