Tonight In Rock: No Doubt, Jarvis Cocker, Starlight Mints, The Long Lost
Jarvis Cocker will be performing tonight at the Wiltern | Picture via Jarvis Cocker's Myspace
Our Pick: Jarvis Cocker, Little Joy @ The Wiltern
Tonight Anaheim-based ska-infused pop outfit No Doubt will be headlining the Gibson Amphitheatre with Grammy-nominated pop punk outfit Paramore and Swedish new wave rockers the Sounds in tow. Oklahoma-based indie pop act Starlight Mints are poised to grace the Troubadour with none other than Castledoor. And, lastly, LA-based orchestral pop duo the Long Lost, a collaboration between Alfred Darlington (otherwise known as electronic mastermind Daedelus) and his wife Laura, will be performing at the Bootleg Theatre. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Wiltern to catch English musician Jarvis Cocker, best known as the front man of legendary Sheffield-based alternative rockers Pulp. LA-based indie pop outfit Little Joy (LAist Review) 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.
