Tonight In Rock: Kimya Dawson, The Builders And The Butchers, Alberta Cross, Clare & The Reasons

Our Pick: Alberta Cross, Hacienda, The Jakes @ Troubadour
Tonight acclaimed Olympia-bred anti-folk singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson will be gracing the Smell in Downtown. Portland's own folk rockers the Builders and the Butchers (LAist Interview) are poised to take on Spaceland. And, lastly, Brooklyn-based indie pop septet Clare & the Reasons will be performing at McCabe's Guitar Shop. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Brooklyn-via-London-via-Sweden rock revivalists Alberta Cross. LAist favorites, San Antonio's own retro 50s/60s rock outfit Hacienda are slated to kick things off.
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.
