Tonight In Rock: The Black Keys, Perfume Genius, Sun Araw, Funeral Party
Perfume Genius will be performing tonight at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever | Picture via Perfume Genius' Myspace
Our Pick: Perfume Genius @ Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever
Tonight Akron's crown jewel, blues rock duo the Black Keys will be headlining the Hollywood Palladium with none other than Costa Mesa-based psych rockers the Growlers in tow. LA-bred uber psychedelic drone act Sun Araw are poised to take on the Echo with Onohtrix Point Never. And, lastly, local indie rockers Funeral Party will be performing one last time at Bootleg Theater before leaving for their first major tour. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever to catch Seattle-based musician Mike Hadrea, otherwise referred to "sad bastard solo project," or rather, Perfume Genius.
Perfume Genius - "Learning"
