Our Pick: Monotonix, The Mae Shi, Anavan @ Spaceland $12
Tonight Canadian poet, novelist and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen will be taking on a two-date stint at Club Nokia in Downtown. Scottish pop rockers Travis are poised to headline the Wiltern with LAist favorites the Republic Tigers (LAist Interview) in tow. As always, local producer/multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion (LAist Review) will be jamming with friends at Largo at the Coronet. And, lastly, Winnetka-bred experimental beat-maker Flying Lotus will be gracing the Echoplex. But we strongly suggest stopping by Spaceland to check out Israeli shock rock troupe Monotonix (LAist Review).
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 from here on out.
