Our Pick: Everest, These United States, The Parson Red Heads @ Troubadour
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. Athens-based psych rockers Dead Confederate and Austin-based rock outfit Ume are poised to open for none other than legendary Phoenix-bred alternative rockers the Meat Puppets. And, lastly, English electro-pop songstress Little Boots will be headlining the Roxy with Boston-based electro-pop quartet Yes Giantess and local retro 70s pop act Music Go Music in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch local alt-rockers Everest (LAist Review, #2). LAist favorites the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) and These United States are slated to kick things off.
