Our Pick: Kaki King, An Horse @ El Rey Theatre
Tonight Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cincinnati indie rock act the National will be concluding a two-night stint at the Wiltern. Québécois singer-songwriter Patrick Watson is poised to headline the Hotel Café with none other than OC-based folk outfit Yellow Red Sparks in tow. Southern rock maestro Shooter Jennings & Hierophantwill be performing at the Troubadour. And, lastly, the first ever Silver Lake Jubilee, a two-day community festival which features a bevy of twenty-some-odd local bands each day, will be taking place on Myra Avenue at Santa Monica Boulevard and North Hoover Avenue. But we strongly suggest heading over to the El Rey Theatre to catch Hottlanta-based rocker Kaki King. LAist favorites, Australian indie pop duo An Horse 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.
