Great Northern

Our Pick: Pablove Benefit w/ Great Northern, Obi Best, Xu Xu Fang, Division Day (DJ Set) @ Bootleg Theatre

Tonight famed NY-based singer-songwriter/actor Sean Lennon will be performing at Largo at the Coronet alongside none other than Buffalo-bred singer-songwriter/actor Vincent Gallo. Local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2) are poised to grace Edgar Varela Fine Arts, or the "JungleRush Gallery," or whatever you want to call it, with LAist favorites Go West Young Man and Radars to the Sky (LAist Review, #2, #3). And, lastly, Onelinedrawing—the solo project of Jonah Matranga, best known as the vocalist for melodic hard rock outfit Far—will be taking on a three-night stint at the Knitting Factory's AlterKnit Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theatre to catch LA-based indie rock act Great Northern (LAist Review, #2), who will be performing to benefit the Pablove Foundation. LAist favorites Obi Best (LAist Interview, Review, #2) and Xu Xu Fang (LAist Review, #2, #3) are slated to kick things off.
