Our Pick: Roky Erickson w/ Okkervil River, Leslie and The Badgers @ Henry Fonda Music Box
Tonight Bristol-based electronic duo Massive Attack will be taking on a three-night stint at the Wiltern, ringing in their first release in over seven years—2010's Heligoland. Massachusetts-based metalcore act Converge—who recently released their seventh studio album, 2010's Axe To Fall—are poised to take on the El Rey Theatre. And, lastly, Seattle-bred pop rock duo Ivan and Alyosha will be gracing the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch iconic Austin-based psychedelic rock singer-songwriter, and founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators, Roky Erickson perform songs from 2010's True Love Cast Out All Evil (LAist Review) with none other than Okkervil River. LAist favorites, local alt-country troubadours Leslie and the Badgers are 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.
