Tonight In Rock: Mayer Hawthorne, Tortoise, David Bazan, Big Whup

Our Pick: David Bazan, mewithoutYou, Rubik @ The Music Box
Tonight LA-by-way-of-Michigan retro soul singer-songwriter Mayer Hawthorne will be gracing the Getty Center for this month's edition of 'Saturdays off the 405.' Iconic Chicago-based jazz-infused post-rockers Tortoise are poised to take on the Troubadour. And, lastly, local pop quintet Big Whup will be performing for free, in-store at Origami Vinyl. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Music Box to catch celebrated indie rock singer-songwriter David Bazan, who spent most of his formative years performing under the moniker Pedro the Lion. LAist favorites, Finnish indie rockers Rubik, who are touring in support of their second studio-album—2010's Dada Bandits—and Philadelphia-based experimental rock outfit mewithoutYou are slated to perform as well.
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.
