Passion Pit

Our Pick: Passion Pit, Harlem Shakes, Cale Parks @ Echoplex

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. Baltimore-based avant-gardists Animal Collective (LAist Review, #2) are headlining a sold-out show at the Wiltern with Portland's own experimental folk songstress Grouper. Montreal-bred DJ/producer Tiga will be gracing the Avalon with James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem opening on the decks. And, lastly, New Mexico-based psych folk rockers Brightblack Morning Light will be sharing the stage at Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock with Brooklyn's own folk songstress Rio En Medio. The irony here, of course, is that the actual Rio En Medio, or "river in between," can be found in New Mexico; perfect pairing. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Echoplex to catch Cambridge-bred electro-pop outfit Passion Pit (LAist Review). LAist favorites Brooklyn-based indie rockers Harlem Shakes are slated to kick things off.
