Tonight In Rock: Matisyahu, Bat For Lashes, Miike Snow, LANDy

Our Pick: Bat For Lashes, Hecuba @ El Rey Theatre
Tonight Hasidic Jewish reggae musician Matisyahu will be headlining the Wiltern. English/German indie rockers Art Brut are poised to kick off a three night stint at Spaceland with Swedish electro pop outfit Miike Snow in tow. And, lastly, actor/filmmaker Adam Goldberg's musical endeavor LANDy will be performing at the Echo with local indie rockers the French Semester. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the El Rey Theatre to catch Bat For Lashes, the pseudonym of Brighton-based singer-songwriter Natasha Khan. Local experimental electronic act Hecuba 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.
