Our Pick: Glass Candy, Acid Girls, Franki Chan, Paul Devro @ Lot 613 (613 Imperial St., Los Angeles)
Tonight legendary Portland-based Pavement front man Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks will be performing at the Echoplex. LA-by-way-of-Tulsa folk rock singer-songwriter AM is poised to grace the Hotel Café. And, lastly, local indie folk outfit Marvelous Toy will be performing with Highland Park's own experimental rockers Seasons at Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest heading over to Lot 613 in Downtown to catch LAist favorites, Portland-based Italo disco act Glass Candy.
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.
