Tonight Grammy Award winning R&B singer Robin Thicke will be headlining Nokia Theatre in Downtown. Parisian composer and musician Yann Tiersen is poised to share the El Rey Theatre with none other than Brooklyn-based shoegazer Asobi Seksu. And, lastly, Iowa-bred deep-blues vocalist/musician William Elliott Whitmore will be headlining the Knitting Factory's Main Stage.
But we strongly suggest heading over to BOXeight to catch local buzz band Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, who will be performing alongside a handful of stellar LA-based acts like Megapuss, thenewno2, Fool's Gold, Rainbow^Arabia and Saint Motel.
