Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, The Bad Plus, Robert Francis, Oliver Future
The Bad Plus will be playing tonight at the Mint | Picture via the Bad Plus' Myspace
Our Pick: The Bad Plus, Wendy Lewis @ The Mint
Tonight local producer/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Review) will be jamming with friends at Largo at the Coronet. LA-bred singer-songwriter Robert Francis (LAist Interview) is poised to perform at Home Restaurant. Although we recommend going merely for the images, the second night of Exposure, a local photography exhibition which takes place at Meet Mix Mogul, boasts performances by One Trick Pony, the Voyeurs (LAist Interview) and the Monolators (LAist Review, #2). And, lastly, LA-by-way-of-Austin indie rockers Oliver Future will be gracing Spaceland. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Mint to catch avant-garde jazz trio the Bad Plus. They will be joined by vocalist Wendy Lewis to perform songs from their forthcoming disc of covers, 2009's For All I Care.
