Tonight In Rock: Mike Stinson, Alex & Sam, Julia Holter, Anavan
Alex & Sam will be playing tonight at the Hotel Café | Picture via Alex & Sam's Myspace
Our Pick: Pwrfl Power, Naked Hearts, Cap Lori, Alex & Sam @ The Hotel Café
Tonight NY-based experimental rockers the Present will be headlining Spaceland with LA-based singer-songwriter Julia Holter in tow. Earlier in the day local Country troubadour Mike Stinson is poised to grace the Echo. And, lastly, local experimental electronic act Anavan will be helping Massachusetts' own Math the Band ring in their latest disc at the Smell. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Hotel Café to catch local jazz-infused pop duo Alex & Sam (LAist Interview, Review).
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.
