Tonight In Rock: Phoenix, Chairlift, Monotonix, The Gaslamp Killer
Chairlift will be performing tonight at the Troubadour | Picture via Chairlift's Myspace
Our Pick: Chairlift, Glasser, John Maus @ Troubadour
Tonight Parisian buzz band Phoenix are poised to grace the Greek Theatre with Canadian indie rock outfit Metric (LAist Interview, Review) and local garage rockers the Soft Pack in tow. Israeli shock rock troupe Monotonix (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Smell in Downtown. And, lastly, San Diego-bred DJ the Gaslamp Killer will be on the decks at the Roxy. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Brooklyn-based indie pop outfit Chairlift (LAist Review). LAist's favorite, predominantly electronic one-woman-band Glasser is 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 (generally) goes up every Sunday.
