Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Pixies, Múm, Rupa & The April Fishes
Múm will be performing Friday at the El Rey Theatre | Picture via Múm's Myspace
Our Pick: Múm, Sin Fang Bous, Hildur Gudnadottir @ El Rey Theatre
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. Legendary Boston-bred alternative rock outfit the Pixies are poised to conclude a three-night stint at the Hollywood Palladium with Brooklyn-bred TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone, who will be performing material from his solo endeavor Rain Machine of course. And, lastly, San Franciscan genre-defying septet Rupa & the April Fishes will be gracing the Mint. But we strongly suggest heading over to the El Rey Theatre to catch experimental Icelandic collective Múm. LAist favorites, Icelandic indie pop outfit Sin Fang Bous 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.
