Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Andrew Bird, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Sara Lov

Our Pick: Andrew Bird, Ra Ra Riot, Heartless Bastards @ Greek Theatre
Tonight, as always, local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) will be jamming with friends at the Largo at the Coronet. Recent Saddle Creek signees, Toronto-based indie rock outfit the Rural Alberta Advantage will be performing at the Echo. And, lastly, Hawaiian-bred singer Sara Lov will be gracing the Mint. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Greek Theatre to catch Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird (LAist Review). Syracuse-bred indie rockers Ra Ra Riot and Cincinnati's own garage rock outfit Heartless Bastards (LAist Interview) 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 (generally) goes up every Sunday.
