Our Pick: BLK JKS, Hecuba @ The Echo
Tonight NY-based protopunk rockers New York Dolls will be headlining the Henry Fonda Music Box. NY's own gypsy punk outfit Gogol Bordello are poised to kick off the first concert ever at the newly-restored, art deco style Fox Theater in Pomona, which used to serve as a movie palace in the '30s before falling into disrepair. Local buzz band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (LAist Review) will be opening the aforementioned show. And, lastly, NY-based pop rock act the Virgins (LAist Interview, Review) will be gracing the El Rey Theatre with San Diegan singer-songwriter Anya Marina (LAist Review) and ruddy-haired bombshell Lissy Trulie (LAist Review) in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch South African experimental rockers BLK JKS, who have been heralded as the TV on the Radio of their hemisphere (and rightfully so). LAist favorites Hecuba 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.
