Our Pick: Crocodiles, Tamaryn, Heavy Hawaii @ The Echo
Tonight Fullerton-based punk rock outfit Social Distortion (LAist Review) will be headlining yet again at the Hollywood Palladium. Famed Québécois producer/musician Daniel Lanois' Black Dub are poised to take on the El Rey Theatre with none other than local singer-songwriter Rocco Deluca (LAist Interview, Review) in tow.
And, lastly, local experimental two-man band El Ten Eleven will be gracing the Central in Santa Monica with local indie pop quartet Superhumanoids. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch San Diegan garage rockers Crocodiles. LAist favorites, San Franciscan shoegaze-y psych-rock duo Tamaryn are slated to kick things off.
