Sir Richard Bishop

Our Pick: Black Dice, Wolf Eyes, Sir Richard Bishop, Earthless @ The The Escarpment (5610 Soto St.)

Tonight Georgia-bred singer-songwriter Meiko (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4, #5) Georgia-bred singer-songwriter/producer Butch Walker will be performing among a handful of prominent artists for this year's Bu Fest, an eco-friendly festival which takes place at Paramount Ranch in Malibu (UPDATE: Meiko's appearance has been canceled, according to her MySpace). Brooklyn-based folk rock troubadour Langhorne Slim (LAist Review, #2) is poised to headline Spaceland. And, lastly, Berlin's own garage rock troupe King Khan and the Shrines will be concluding a two-night stint at the Echo. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Escarpment in Huntington Park to catch experimental electronic outfit Black Dice. LAist favorite Sir Richard Bishop, an experimental American guitarist and former member of Sun City Girls, is slated to kick things off.
