Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Band Of Skulls, Tristeza, Son Volt

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

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. English rockers Band of Skulls are poised to perform to a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour with none other than local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3). And, lastly, Saint Louis-bred alt-rockers Son Volt will be headlining the El Rey Theatre. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch prolific San Diegan post rock instrumentalists Tristeza, who will be ringing in their latest endeavor—2009's Fate Unfolds.
