Tonight In Rock: John Legend, Mew, Band Of Skulls, The 88
Luke Top will be performing tonight at Troubadour | Picture via Luke Top's Myspace
Our Pick: Mew, Luke Top @ Troubadour (Sold-Out)
Tonight virtuosic R&B singer-songwriter John Legend will be performing at the Greek Theatre. English rockers Band of Skulls are poised to take on the El Rey Theatre with labelmates the Duke Spirit. And, lastly, LA-based indie rock outfit the 88 will be kicking off a month-long residency at Spaceland. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Troubadour to catch Danish rockers Mew, who are slated to open for NIN later this week. LA-via-Tel Aviv transplant Luke Top—otherwise known as Fool's Gold front man—is slated to kick things off.
