Our Pick: Learning Music, Video, Rats @ Pehrspace

Tonight influential Brazilian psychedelic rock band Os Mutantes (LAist Review) will be headlining the Echoplex. NY-based experimental electronic act Gang Gang Dance are poised to take on the Troubadour with none other than local avante-gardist Ariel Pink. And, lastly, LA-based jazz-infused rockers Big Moves will be performing at the Mint. But we strongly suggest heading over to Pehrspace to catch local prolific songwriter John Wood, who performs under the pseudonym Learning Music.
