Our Pick: Laura Marling, Dylan LeBlanc @ El Rey Theatre

Tonight Brooklyn-based indie rock quartet Obits will be headlining the Echo. LA-based indie pop quartet Robotanists are poised to grace LaBrie's in Glendale with none other than local blues-infused indie rock duo Rumspringa (LAist Review, #2) and Vanaprasta in tow. And, lastly, Irvine-bred electro pop trio Faded Paper Figures will be performing at Spaceland, ringing in their sophomore record—2010's New Medium. But we strongly suggest heading over to the El Rey Theatre to catch English folk singer-songwriter Laura Marling, who recently released her second studio-album—2010's Mercury Prize-nominated I Speak Because I Can. LAist favorite, Shreveport-bred folk singer-songwriter Dylan Leblanc is slated to kick things off.
