Our Pick: Grizzly Bear, Here We Go Magic @ 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. San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Ben Kweller will be headlining the El Rey Theatre with LAist favorites Local Natives (LAist Review). English/German indie rockers Art Brut are poised to conclude a three night stint at Spaceland with the Blood Arm (LAist Interview) in tow. And, lastly, San Franciscan indie rockers Lovelikefire will be gracing the Bootleg Theatre. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Wiltern to catch Brooklyn-based indie rockers Grizzly Bear. Fellow Brooklynites Here We Go Magic are slated to kick things off.
