Tonight In Rock: Stars, Matmos, Olin And The Moon, Gemma Ray
Gemma Ray will be performing tonight at the Hotel Café | Picture via Gemma Ray's Myspace
Our Pick: Lucy Woodward's record release, The Life of Riley, Heather Waters, Gemma Ray @ The Hotel Café
Tonight Canadian indie rock quintet Stars will be concluding a two-night, sold-out stint at the Troubadour. Baltimore-by-way-of-San Francisco experimental electronic duo Matmos are poised to take on Rec Center Studio, also known as the Jensen Rec Center, in Echo Park. And, lastly, local alt-rockers Olin & the Moon (LAist Interview) will be gracing the Silver Lake Lounge. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Hotel Café to catch Essex-bred singer-songwriter Gemma Ray, who is touring in support of her latest studio-album—2010's It's A Shame About Gemma Ray.
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.
