Our Pick: Princeton, Casxio, Rafter, The Jubilee Singers @ Spaceland (FREE!)
Tonight local blues-infused indie rock duo Rumspringa (LAist Review, #2) will be opening up the second night of Red Arrow Messenger's free residency at the Bootleg Theater. LA-based alternative rockers the Useless Keys will be gracing the Echo once more. And, lastly, bicoastal electro-pop singer-songwriter Guy Fantastico will be performing at the Silver Lake Lounge with LA-based indie pop outfit HAIM. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch the second night of Eagle Rock-bred indie rock outfit Princeton's (LAist Interview) month-long residency.
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.
