Tonight In Rock: Jenny And Jonny, The Submarines, Blue Giant, Pacific Hurt
Our Pick: Pacific Hurt, LESANDS, Mississippi Man, Neverever @ Troubadour
Tonight Jenny and Johnny, yet another boy/girl duo featuring none other than ruddy-haired Rilo Kiley front woman Jenny Lewis and her middle-of-the-road actor/singer-songwriter boyfriend Jonathan Rice, will be performing for free, in-store at Amoeba Music in Hollyweird. Apple commercial inductees, LA-based indie pop duo the Submarines are poised to take on the Bootleg Theater with local "fancy pop" songstress Obi Best (LAist Interview, Review, #2) and Sacramento's Julie Baenziger, who performs under the pseudonym Sea of Bees. And, lastly, Portland-based alt-rock-leaning outfit Blue Giant, which is of course a splinter of celebrated indie pop act Viva Voce, will be warming up the stage at Spaceland for Nashville's own rock troubadour Bobby Bare Jr.. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Pacific Hurt, formerly known as Santa Ana-based indie rockers Aushua. LAist favorites, San Diegan buzz band LESANDS, LA-by-way-of-Glasgow retro 50s/60s pop outfit Neverever and folk-infused indie rock outfit Mississippi Man are all slated to perform as well.
Pacific Hurt - "No Harm Done"
LESANDS - "Easy To Please"
Neverever - "Young And Dumb"
