Our Pick: Starfucker, Deelay Ceelay, Strength @ The Echo

Tonight English singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock will be headlining Spaceland with none other than local indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) in tow. Philadelphia's own psych rockers Dr. Dog (LAist Review) are poised to grace the Henry Fonda Music Box. And, lastly, local ten-piece funk orchestra Breakestra will be taking on the El Rey Theatre. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch Portland-bred electro-infused indie pop outfit Starfucker (LAist Review, #2). LAist favorites, Portland-based electro pop trio Strength 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.
