Our Pick: Spaceland On Ice w/ Le Switch, The World Record @ Pershing Square
Tonight NYC musical collective the Phenomenal Handclap Band will be headlining the Echo with LA-based indie rockers White Arrows in tow. Local noise pop act the Meeting Places are poised to take on Spaceland for this week's edition of Club NME. And, lastly, LA-bred pop quartet Oh Darling will be gracing the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly suggest heading over to Pershing Square to catch local indie rockers Le Switch (LAist Review, #2, #3).
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.
