Tonight In Rock: She & Him, The Deadly Syndrome, The Morning Benders, Dead Meadow
Our Pick: The Deadly Syndrome's record release, Signals, Rabbits @ Echoplex
Tonight Portland-based alt-country duo She & Him, or rather Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the El Rey Theatre with the Living Sisters—a triumvirate of venerable female troubadours, which includes Inara George, Becky Stark, and Eleni Mandell—in tow. San Franciscan indie pop outfit the Morning Benders (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to headline the Troubadour with none other than LAist favorites Miniature Tigers (LAist Interview, Review) and We Barbarians. And, lastly, LA-bred psych rockers Dead Meadow will be ringing in their latest endeavor—2010's feature-length film and soundtrack Three Kings—at Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever for free. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch local indie rockers the Deadly Syndrome (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4), who will be ringing in their latest effort—2010's Nolens Volens. Signals (LAist Review), the phoenix to rise from the ashes of the Mae Shi (LAist Interview, Review, #2), 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 (generally) goes up every Sunday.
