The Western States Motel will be playing tonight at the Spaceland | Picture via the Western States Motel's Myspace

Our Pick: The Western States Motel, Marching Band, The Voyeurs, Tigers Can Bite You @ Spaceland (Free!)

Tonight Portland-based indie rock group the Decemberists (LAist Review) will be headlining the Wiltern in support of their latest single series, Always The Bridesmaid. WEAVE will be playing the penultimate night of their month-long residency at the Echo with Highland Park's own Crooked Cowboy & The Freshwater Indians. And the Monolators (LAist Review) will be closing out their residency at the hole-and-corner Pehrspace. But we suggest you catch LAist favorites the Western States Motel (LAist Interview, Review), as it will be their final night co-headlining at Spaceland with Swedish indie rockers Marching Band. Don't miss out!
