Tonight LA will remain relatively mum. Huntington Beach-based ska all stars Reel Big Fish are headlining the House of Blues Sunset. Electronic "junk punk" outfit Babyland will be coming through Spaceland. And, lastly, singer-songwriter Michelle Amador will be breaking out the jazz hands at the Hotel Café.
