Tonight In Rock: Mumford & Sons, Fitz & The Tantrums, DâM-FunK, Born Ruffians
The Middle East will be performing tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture via the Middle East's Myspace
Our Pick: Mumford & Sons, The Middle East @ Henry Fonda Music Box (Sold-Out)
Tonight DâM-FunK, or rather the "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," is poised to perform at the Echoplex with local electronic masterminds Daedelus and the Gaslamp Killer. Canadian experimental indie rock trio Born Ruffians will be ringing in their second studio album—2010's Say It— at the the Echo with Young Rival. And, lastly, local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums, who recently inked a deal with Dangerbird Records, will be gracing Spaceland with one of LAist's favorites pop quartets, Oh Darling. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch English folk rockers Mumford & Sons. LAist favorites, Australian folk outfit the Middle East are slated to kick things off.
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.
