Our Pick: Friendly Fires, The XX, Holly Miranda @ Henry Fonda Music Box
Tonight Maine-bred folk singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne will be continuing a three-night stint at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown with LAist favorite, Illinois-based alternative country singer-songwriter Lissie. As mentioned previously, South Carolina-by-way-of-Seattle folk rockers Band of Horses are poised to headline the Avalon with none other than local indie rock outfit Sea Wolf (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3), as well as a bevy of of other great musicians, to benefit the Pablove Foundation. And, lastly, Swedish indie rockers Peter Bjorn and John (LAist Review, #2) will be taking on Club Nokia in Downtown. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch St. Albans-based dance pop outfit Friendly Fires (LAist Review). LAist favorites, acclaimed British indie rock outfit the XX are 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 goes up every Sunday.
