Tonight In Rock: Nels Cline, Nomo, Prefuse 73, Red Cortez
Tonight Wilco guitarist Nels Cline (LAist Interview) will be performing at the Mint. Georgia-bred electronic producer/musician extraordinaire Guillermo Scott Herren, otherwise known as Prefuse 73, will be headlining the Troubadour with none other than San Diego-bred DJ the Gaslamp Killer in tow. And, lastly, local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) will be performing at the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch Ann Arbor's crown jewel, a relatively diminutive post-afrobeat outfit by the name of Nomo (LAist Review, #2). LAist favorites Orgone, a proficient funk troupe that stunned us at Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle a few years back, 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 generally goes up every Sunday.
