Our Pick: The Glitch Mob, Nosaj Thing, Daddy Kev @ The Roxy
Tonight London-based electro-pop duo La Roux will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour. Pennsylvanian mash-up king Girl Talk (LAist Review, #2) is poised to headline the Pomona Fox Theater with LAist favorites Brother Reade (LAist Interview, Review) and Walter Meego (LAist Review) in tow. And, lastly, Brooklyn-based electronic act the Golden Filter will be gracing the Avalon in Hollywood. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Roxy to catch local electronic mastermind Nosaj Thing. The Glitch Mob are slated to headline.
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.
