Our Pick: Lou Barlow, Sarah Jaffe @ Bootleg Theater

Tonight Brooklyn-based soul/funk group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will be headlining the Wiltern with English indie rock act the Heavy (LAist Interview) in tow. Local alt-rock outfit Everest (LAist Review, #2) are poised to perform for free at One Colorado in Downtown Pasadena. And, lastly, Brooklyn-based noise-infused rock outfit A Place To Bury Strangers (LAist Review) will be taking on Spaceland with none other than local alternative rockers the Useless Keys. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch founding member of Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, the Folk Implosion and overall lo-fi rock pioneer Lou Barlow. LAist favorite, Denton-based singer-songwriter Sarah Jaffe, who is touring in support of her astonishing 2010 debut, Suburban Nature, is 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.
