Our Pick: Matt Vasquez (of Delta Spirit), The Parson Red Heads, The Romany Rye @ Spaceland
Tonight local folk duo the Ditty Bops will be performing at the Steve Allen Theatre in Los Feliz. London-based experimental pop outfit Micachu & the Shapes are poised to headline the Echo with the tUnE-YaRdS in tow. And, lastly, classically-trained violinist-turned-singer-songwriter Christina Courtin (LAist Interview) will be gracing Largo at the Coronet. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch lead singer of Delta Spirit, Matt Vasquez. LAist favorites the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) are slated to kick things off.
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.
