Our Pick: Monsters of Folk: Jim James, Conor Oberst, M. Ward and Mike Mogis @ Greek Theatre

Tonight Long Island-bred pop punk outfit Brand New will be concluding a two-night stint at the Hollywood Palladium with Atlanta-based indie rock act Manchester Orchestra and Portland's own folk rockers the Builders and the Butchers (LAist Interview) in tow. Legendary San Diegan indie rockers the Black Heart Procession are poised to headline the Echoplex with none other than San Jose-bred eclectic rock outfit the Mumlers. And, lastly, Glendale-based folk troubadour Michael Runion will be gracing Spaceland for free with local pop rock act HAIM. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Greek Theatre to catch Monsters of Folk, the folk-oriented supergroup that brings together Jim James, Mike Mogis, Conor Oberst and M. Ward.

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.
