Tonight In Rock: Janelle Monae, Saint Motel, Nico Stai, Birds & Batteries
Janelle Monae will be performing tonight at Siren Studio | Picture via Janelle Monae's Myspace
Our Pick: Kia Soul Collective presents Janelle Monae, Fool's Gold @ Siren Studio (1050 N. Orange Dr., Hollywood)
Tonight local indie rock outfit Saint Motel's (LAist Interview) will be performing at the Roxy with none other than Rumspringa (LAist Review, #2) and Army Navy (LAist Interview, #2, Review). LA-based indie rock troubadour Nico Stai is poised to grace Spaceland. And, lastly, San Franciscan alt-rockers Birds & Batteries will be taking on the American Legion Post 206. But we strongly suggest heading over to Siren Studio to catch Kansas City-bred Grammy Award-nominated pop singer-songwriter Janelle Monae. LAist favorites, afro-centric indie pop act Fool's Gold 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.
