Tonight In Rock: La Roux, Fitz & The Tantrums, Antibalas, Frankel

Our Pick: Shakey Graves, Frankel @ Redwood Bar & Grill
Tonight London-based electro-pop duo La Roux (LAist Review) will be headlining Club Nokia in Downtown. Local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums, who recently inked a deal with Dangerbird Records, are poised to perform for free at the Hammer Museum for this week's edition of 'Also I Like To Rock.' And, lastly, Brooklyn-based afrobeat act Antibalas will be gracing the Echoplex. But we strongly suggest heading over to Redwood Bar & Grill in Downtown to catch one of Silver Lake's most gifted singer-songwriters, Michael Orendy, who of course performs under the pseudonym Frankel (LAist Interview).
Frankel - "Anonymity Is The New Fame"
La Roux - "Growing Pains"
Fitz & The Tantrums - "Don't Gotta Work It Out"
Antibalas - "Hilo"
