Foreign Born

Our Pick: Foreign Born record release @ Vacation (4679 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles; 7 PM)

Tonight Wilco and Dinosaur Jr. will be doing their "thing," respectively. Québécois indie rockers Sunset Rubdown, which began as a solo project for Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade, will be headlining the Echoplex. LA's finest pop rockers the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to grace On The Rox at the Roxy in Hollywood with the Boat People and the Picture. And, lastly, Sydney-based electro pop sensation Sneaky Sound System will be performing at Cinespace. But we strongly suggest heading over to your friendly vinyl vendor Vacation to catch local indie rock outfit Foreign Born, who will be ringing in their second full length to date—2009's Person to Person.
