Our Pick: Cold War Kids, Alec Ounsworth @ The Wiltern

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. Akron-bred folk rock singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur is poised to kick off a two-night stint at the Troubadour with none other than the son of Paul Simon, Harper Simon. LAist favorite Jemina Pearl, lead singer of acclaimed Nashville-based garage rock outfit Be Your Own Pet, will be gracing the Echo. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Wiltern to catch Long Beach-bred indie rock stalwarts the Cold War Kids (LAist Review, #2). Clap Your Hands Say Yeah front man Alec Ounsworth is 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.
