Tonight In Rock: Kings Of Leon, Active Child, The Mynabirds, Mississippi Man
Mississippi Man will be performing tonight at the Echo | Picture via Mississippi Man's Myspace
Our Pick: Mississippi Man, Useless Keys, Superhumanoids, Dahga Bloom @ The Echo (FREE!)
Tonight Nashville-bred alternative rockers Kings of Leon will be headlining the Hollywood Bowl with none other than legendary Boise-based indie rock progenitors Built To Spill. LA's own electro-pop singer-songwriter Active Child is poised to take on Bardot for this week's edition of 'School Night.' And, lastly, former Georgie James member Laura Burhenn, who currently performs under the pseudonym the Mynabirds (LAist Interview), will be gracing the Hotel Café. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch local folk-infused indie rock outfit Mississippi Man. LAist favorites, local indie pop quartet Superhumanoids and alternative rockers the Useless Keys are slated to perform as well. Did we mention that it's Molly Bergen's birthday? And she's DJing as well?! Say wha!
