The Strange Boys will be performing tonight at the Palace Theatre | Picture via the Strange Boys Myspace
Our Pick: Julian Casablancas, The Strange Boys, HAIM @ Palace Theatre
Tonight LA-based pop rock act Rooney will be headlining the El Rey Theatre with none other than Ann Arbor's own Tally Hall. Vancouver-bred garage rockers Japandroids are poised to take on the Echo with Florida-based surf-infused rock outfit Surfer Blood in tow. And, lastly, local indie rock duo the Voyeurs (LAist Interview, Review) will be gracing Casey's Irish Pub in Downtown. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Palace Theatre in Downtown as well to catch the Strokes' vocalist and chief songwriter Julian Casablancas (LAist Interview), who will be concluding his month-long residency. LAist favorites, Austin-by-way-of-Dallas garage rock outfit the Strange Boys (LAist Review, #2).
