Our Pick: Megafaun, Breathe Owl Breathe, Hi Ho Silver Oh @ The Echo
Tonight Akron-bred folk rock singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur will be headlining the Bootleg Theater. Former Nickel Creek fiddler Sara Watkins (LAist Interview) is poised to grace McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Mon Mon. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit Warpaint (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) will be performing at UCLA's Kerckhoff Grand Salon with none other than local rock and roll act Slang Chickens. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch Durham-based folk act Megafaun.
Megafaun - "The Fade"
Sara Watkins - "Long Hot Summer Days feat. Sean Watkins, John Paul Jones and ?uestlove"
Joseph Arthur - "Morning Cup"
Warpaint - "Stars"
