Our Pick: Family of the Year, Hands, Gardens and Villa @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight Swedish indie rockers Peter Bjorn and John (LAist Review, #2), who are touring in support of their yet-to-be-released sixth studio album—2011's Gimme Some, will be gracing Bardot for this week's edition of School Night.
And, lastly, local "fancy pop" songstress Obi Best (LAist Interview, Review, #2) will be taking on the Satellite. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch local indie folk collective Family of the Year. LAist favorites, local experimental indie pop quartet Hands are slated to kick things off.
Family of the Year - "Chugjug"
Hands - "Onward Upward"
