Tonight In Rock: Justice, Dirty Projectors, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, The Fuxedos

Our Pick: Dirty Projectors, Little Wings @ Jensen Rec Center (1161 Logan Street, Los Angeles)
Tonight, much like last year, monolithic Parisian electro duo Justice will be headlining a Hard Haunted Mansion at the Shrine Auditorium that is sure to sate anyone who's craving a dance party. Local indie rock buzz band Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Park Plaza Hotel with none other than DJ Shadow, Sea Wolf (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3) and Little Dragon for KCRW's Masquerade Halloween party. And, lastly, LA-based rock outfit the Fuxedos will be throwing a Halloween party of their own at Spaceland. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Jensen Rec Center to catch Brooklyn's crown jewel, the erratic experimental indie rock collective known as Dirty Projectors (LAist Review). Stand outside and listen, go eat tacos at Tacos Arizas—just be there goddamnit!
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.
