Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Bebel Gilberto, Vivian Girls, Spanish For 100
Jon Brion will be playing tonight at Largo at the Coronet | Picture via Jon Brion's Myspace
Our Pick: Jon Brion @ Largo at the Coronet
Tonight Grammy Award-nominated Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto will be sharing the stage at the Hollywood Bowl with none other than Brazilian singer-songwriter Seu George. Brooklyn's own punk rock trio Vivian Girls are poised to take on the Echo with the Beets. And, lastly, Seattle-based indie rockers Spanish For 100 will be performing at Mr. T's Bowl. But we strongly suggest heading over to Largo at the Coronet to catch local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion, who will be jamming with friends of course.
