The Muslims will be headlining tonight at Pehrspace | Picture via the Muslims' Myspace

Our Pick: The Muslims, AM @ Pehrspace

Tonight the "Godmother of Punk," Patti Smith, will be gracing LA with a performance at the vaudeville-esque Orpheum. Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan and Sara will be finishing off the third night of their sold-out four-date extravaganza at the Henry Fonda Music Box. And, lastly, Mr T's Bowl will play host to the excessively sweet pop antics of Ventura's own Franklin for Short, Auckland-based the Ruby Suns, LA-based singer-songwriter Angela Correa and yet another Ventura-based band, the Spires. Call us crazy, but we recommend you go catch the Muslims at the hole-and-corner Pehrspace. Something about the no-frills vibe at the tiny office space-turned-venue really gets us amped about tonight's show. Oh and need we mention that it's BYOB?
