Our Pick: Family of the Year, The Steelwells @ Bootleg Theater

Tonight legendary English new wave/post-punk act the Psychedelic Furs will be headlining the Wiltern. LA's own rock and roots singer-songwriter Dave Alvin is poised to head a spectacular bill of local acts at the Echo to benefit the Musicares Nashville Flood Relief Fund. And, lastly, local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums, who recently inked a deal with Dangerbird Records, will be concluding their month-long residency at Spaceland. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch local indie folk sextet Family of the Year. Fullerton-bred indie rock quintet the Steelwells 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.
