Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Céu, Mika Miko, The Builders and The Butchers
The Builders and the Butchers will be playing tonight at Spaceland | Picture via the Builder and the Butchers' Myspace
Our Pick: The Builders and The Butchers, Illinois, Eastern Conference Champions @ Spaceland
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. Brazilian-bred singer-songwriter Céu is poised to grace the Roxy. And, lastly, local noise/punk outfit Mika Miko (LAist Review) will be headlining the Smell in Downtown with Audacity in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch Portland's own folk rockers the Builders and the Butchers (LAist Interview). LAist favorites Illinois and Eastern Conference Champions are slated to kick things off.
Tonight In Rock would also like to tip our cap to Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne (LAist Interview) for his latest Emmy nomination, as well as Tim Delaughter of the Polyphonic Spree.
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.The Builders and The Butchers - Barcelona
