Of Montreal

Our Pick: Grace Jones, Of Montreal, Dengue Fever @ Hollywood Bowl

Tonight local rock and roll outfit Slang Chickens will be performing Studio 1444 with Avi Buffalo (LAist Interview, Review), Swim Party and the Black Apples, among many others. New Mexican country/bluegrass outfit the Handsome Family will be performing early on at McCabe's Guitar Shop. And, lastly, the Bay Area's own garage rockers the Blank Tapes will be taking on Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Hollywood Bowl to catch Athens-based avant-gardists Of Montreal (LAist Review). LAist favorites, local Cambodian rock outfit Dengue Fever (LAist Interview) are slated to kick things off.
