Tonight In Rock: No Doubt, Jon Brion, Stellastarr, Busdriver
Mason Proper will be performing tonight at the Troubadour | Photo by Mike Berlucchi Mason Proper's Myspace
Our Pick: Stellastarr, Wild Light, Mason Proper @ Troubadour
Tonight, as always, local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) will be jamming with friends at the Largo at the Coronet. Anaheim-based ska-infused pop outfit No Doubt are poised to headline the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater twice with Grammy-nominated pop punk outfit Paramore and Swedish new wave rockers the Sounds in tow. And, lastly, local rapper Busdriver (LAist Review, #2) will be performing at the Echoplex with Deerhoof (LAist Review). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch NY-based indie rockers Stellastarr. LAist favorites, Michigan's own Mason Proper and New Hampshire's own Wild Light (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.
