Tonight In Rock: Laura Veirs, Foreign Born, Avi Buffalo, Spirit Vine
Laura Veirs will be playing tonight at the Hotel Café | Photo by Tucker Martine via Laura Veirs' Myspace
Our Pick: Bleu's record release, Mike Viola, Laura Veirs, Luluc, Adam Bones @ The Hotel Café
Long Beach/Los Alamitos natives Avi Buffalo (LAist Interview, Review) will be performing at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights. (Canceled!) LAist favorites Foreign Born (LAist Review) will be gracing the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa with none other than English rockers the Veils. And, lastly, New Zealand-based rock outfit the Datsuns will be taking on Spaceland with locals Spirit Vine in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Hotel Café to catch Portland-based songstress Laura Veirs. LAist favorites Mike Viola (LAist Interview) and Luluc will be performing as well.
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.
