Our Pick: Warpaint, Brother Reade, Crooked Cowboy @ Echoplex
Tonight virtuosic R&B singer-songwriter John Legend will be performing at the Gibson Amphitheatre. Hawaiian-born singer-songwriter Sara Lov is continuing her month-long residency at Spaceland with LAist favorites Learning Music. If you missed Norwegian rock songstress Ida Maria last night, then you can catch her one last time at the Viper Room. And, lastly, it's beginning to appear as though country artist Mike Stinson is to Redwood Bar & Grill as Jon Brion is to Largo; He's practically playing any given day of the month. But we urge you to head over to the Echoplex to catch Eastside buzz band Warpaint's record release show. LA locals Brother Reade (LAist Interview, Review) and Crooked Cowboy are slated to kick off the show.
