Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Blind Pilot, Castledoor, Bobby Birdman

Our Pick: Castledoor, We Barbarians, The Fall Trees @ Bootleg Theater
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. Portland's own indie pop outfit Blind Pilot (LAist Interview) are poised to headline the Troubadour with none other than Rhode Island-bred folk act the Low Anthem (LAist Interview). And, lastly, local electro pop mastermind Bobby Birdman will be gracing Temporary Spaces 2 with Portland-based experimental electronic duo YACHT. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theatre to catch local indie pop act Castledoor (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7). LAist favorites, Long Beach-based indie rockers We Barbarians 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 goes up every Sunday.
