Our Pick: Useless Keys, boxViolet, The Nightbirds, Ovideo, Sing Orpheus @ Dakota Live Music Lounge

Tonight English-born American singer-songwriter, actress, and former stand-up comedian Nellie McKay will be performing Doris Day's songbook at the Echoplex. LA's own rock and roots singer-songwriter Dave Alvin is poised to grace McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Mon Mon. And, lastly, Tustin-by-way-of-Denver folk rock outfit Travel By Sea will be taking on the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Dakota Live Music Lounge to catch local electro-infused indie rock duo boxViolet. LA-based alternative rockers the Useless Keys are slated to perform as well.
