Our Pick: The National, Ramona Falls @ The Wiltern

Tonight local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) will be jamming with friends at the Largo at the Coronet; And Jon is performing less frequently these days, so you have no excuse to soak it up. Swedish indie rockers Shout Out Louds are poised to conclude a two-night stint at the El Rey Theatre with none other than Queens' own indie pop buzz band Freelance Whales. And, lastly, Shadow Shadow Shade (formerly known as the Afternoons) will be gracing Bootleg Theater with local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4). But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Wiltern to catch Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cincinnati indie rock act the National, who will be kicking off a two-night stint in support of their fifth studio album—2010's High Violet. LAist favorites Ramona Falls, a splinter of Portland-based indie rockers Menomena, will also be performing.

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.
