Tonight In Rock: Lupe Fiasco, Broken Social Scene, The Hold Steady, Two Door Cinema Club
Broken Social Scene will be performing tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture via Broken Social Scene's Myspace
Our Pick: Broken Social Scene, Julie Doiron @ Henry Fonda Music Box (Sold-Out)
Tonight Chicago-based hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the House of Blues Sunset. Brooklyn-based rockers the Hold Steady are poised to take on the Grammy Museum in Downtown. And, lastly, Irish indie pop sensation Two Door Cinema Club will be making their US debut at Bardot. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch iconic Toronto-based, Juno-winning indie rock "supercollective" Broken Social Scene, who will be ringing in their latest endeavor—2010's Forgiveness Rock Record. LAist favorite, Canadian indie folk singer-songwriter Julie Doiron is slated to kick things off.
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.
Broken Social Scene - "Texico Bitches"
Lupe Fiasco - "The Birds And The Bees (Unreleased)"
