The Henry Clay People

Our Pick: Rock and Roll Summer Circus w/ The Henry Clay People, Fol Chen, The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra, Marvelous Toy, The Damselles, Roadsode Graves, Les Blanks, Downtown Union and many more @ Echoplex

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. Austin-based theremin-crazed, indietronica outfit the Octopus Project are poised to grace the Troubadour. And, lastly, Highland Park's own deep crooner Crooked Cowboy & the Freshwater Indians will be performing at the Unknown Theatre. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch the first Rock and Roll Circus. Local favorites the Henry Clay People, Fol Chen, the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra and Marvelous Toy are all slated to grace the stage, as well as a handful of other LAist favorites playing acoustic sets in the interim.
