Our Pick: Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, David Vandervelde, Judgement Day @ Troubadour

Tonight LA offers up a few relatively low-key options. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne will be playing at Amoeba at 6 PM for free. NY-based singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata (LAist Review) is slated to perform at Largo at the Coronet. And, lastly, the Hotel Cafe will be hosting a night with Danger Bird recording artists Eulogies (LAist Review), Ed Laurie and La Rocca (LAist Review). But we suggest paying the Troubadour a visit to see Indianapolis-based indie rock collective Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s. The eight-piece band will be premiering material from their forthcoming albums, Animal and Not Animal. It is our understanding that the notion of a two-disc release arose when the band and their label could not agree on which seventeen songs to release. So it will certainly be interesting to watch all of that play out.
