Tonight In Rock: MGMT, John Doe & Exene, Happy Birthday, Still Flyin'
Our Pick: Signals, Rare Grooves, Still Flyin', Heller Keller @ The Smell
Tonight Brooklyn-based neo-psych rockers MGMT will be headlining the Greek Theatre with NY-based electro-funk act Francis and the Lights. John Doe & Exene, two members of the formidable LA punk rock band X, are poised to grace the Autry National Center of the American West with none other than the Living Sisters—a triumvirate of venerable female troubadours, which includes Inara George, Becky Stark, and Eleni Mandell. And, lastly, Vermont-based indie rock trio Happy Birthday, who ever so famously signed by Sub Pop less than six months after recording (not releasing) their first studio-album, will be gracing Spaceland with LA-based garage rock outfit Dirt Dress and Fullerton-based garage rockers My Pet Saddle in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Smell in Downtown to catch San Franciscan indie pop supergroup Still Flyin', ringing in their yet-to-be-released EP—2010's A Party In Motion. LAist favorites, Signals (LAist Review), the phoenix to rise from the ashes of the Mae Shi (LAist Interview, Review, #2) are slated to perform as well.
