Tonight In Rock: Social Distortion, Ween, Deerhoof, Darwin Deez
Darwin Deez will be performing tonight at the Satellite | Picture via Darwin Deez's Myspace
Our Pick: Darwin Deez, Fol Chen @ The Satellite
Tonight Fullerton-based punk rock outfit Social Distortion (LAist Review) will be headlining yet again at the Hollywood Palladium. Pennsylvanian alternative rockers Ween are poised to take on the Wiltern.
And, lastly, SF-based noise rockers Deerhoof will be gracing the Echplex. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Satellite to catch Brooklyn-bred indie pop maestro and former guitarist for the Creaky Boards Darwin Deez. LAist favorites, Highland Park experimental indie rock sextet Fol Chen (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) are slated to kick things off.
