Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Avi Buffalo, Tunng, Eux Autres
Tunng will be performing tonight at the Bootleg Theater | Picture via Tunng's Myspace
Our Pick: Tunng, April Smith and the Great Picture Show, The Good Listeners @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) will be jamming with friends at the Largo at the Coronet; And Jon's is performing less frequently these days, so you have no excuse to soak it up. Long Beach/Los Alamitos natives and recent Sub Pop signees Avi Buffalo (LAist Interview, Review) are poised to headline the Echoplex with none other than Los Angeles-by-way-of-Michigan singer-songwriter Benji Schneider, otherwise known as Lord Huron. And, lastly, San Franciscan rockers Eux Autres will be gracing Spaceland. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch London-bred experimental folk outfit Tunng, who are touring in support of their fourth record to date—2010's ...And Then We Saw Land. LAist favorites, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter April Smith & The Great Picture Show (LAist Interview) are poise to kick things off.
Tunng - "Bullets"
April Smith & The Great Picture Show - "Terrible Things"
Avi Buffalo - "What's In It For"
