Flying Lotus will be playing tonight at the Airliner | Picture via Flying Lotus' Myspace

Our Pick: Low End Theory Presents: Flying Lotus, The Long Lost @ Airliner

Tonight, in what will be regarded as every metal aficionado's wet dream, Metallica (LAist Review) and the Sword (LAist Review) are kicking off a two-night stint at the Forum. NY-based bohemian pop rockers the Virgins (LAist Review) will be strutting their stuff at the Troubadour. Brooklyn-based hard rock trio Earl Greyhound are slated to headline the Hotel Café. And, lastly, Marathon Live will be throwing its Second Annual Musical Christmas Extravaganza, which features the Chapin Sisters and Miranda Lee Richards, at 3 of Clubs. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Airliner in Downtown to catch electronic mastermind Flying Lotus. You can expect to dance alongside a blather of chunky, tribal beats from 2008's tour de force Los Angeles.
