Our Pick: Kenneth Pattengale w/ the Found Object Orchestra & Special Guests @ El Cid
Tonight Grammy-nominated pop singer Katy Perry (LAist Review, #2) will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the Wiltern. Legendary Compton-bred rapper/producer DJ Quik is slated to headline the Keyclub. San Diegan indie rockers the Black Heart Procession will be rocking out at the Echo with the Mumlers and Warpaint in tow.
And, lastly, if you're willing to brave the depths of Santa Ana, then head on over to the Underground to catch Philly's best psych rock outfit Dr. Dog. OC garage-rockers the Growlers, who will be ringing in their latest volume of tunes, are poised to kick off the show. (Canceled!) But we insist that you spend the evening with local singer-songwriter Kenneth Pattengale and the Found Object Orchestra at El Cid. Mr. Pattengale recently released his six full-length effort and his first for Milan Records, Storied Places, exhibiting a jolt of folksy wisdom well beyond his years.
