Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Ray LaMontagne, Delta Spirit, Neon Indian
The Parson Red Heads will be playing tonight at the Bootleg Theater | Photo by Koga for LAist
Our Pick: Neil Young Tribute w/ Delta Spirit, Jason Simon (of Dead Meadow), Ferraby Lionheart, The Parson Red Heads, Leslie Stevens (of Leslie And The Badgers), The Chapin Sisters, Family Of The Year, Justin Gordon, Restavrant, Shakey Graves, Dark Horse House Band feat. Andy Creighton, Brian Whelan and Dan Iead (of The Broken West), John Hoskinson, Rob Douglas, Josh Charney (of Le Switch) @ Bootleg Theater
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. Maine-bred folk singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne is taking on a three-night stint at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown with LAist favorite, Rock Island-based alternative country singer-songwriter Lissie. And, lastly, Austin/Brooklyn-bred electro pop duo Neon Indian will be gracing the Echoplex with none other than Northampton's own electro-infused indie rock act Tigercity. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch San Diegan rockers Delta Spirit (LAist Interview), who will be performing as a part of When You Awake's Neil Young Tribute. LAist favorites, Jason Simon of psych rock outfit Dead Meadow, indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3), alt-country songstress Leslie Stevens of Leslie and the Badgers, folk troubadour Ferraby Lionheart (LAist Interview, Review) and many other talented local artists will be chiming in to celebrate the music of Neil Young, of course, but also to support the Children’s Music Fund.
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.
