Tonight In Rock: The Sounds, Jay Reatard, The Heavy, Flying Lotus
Flying Lotus will be performing tonight at the Airliner | Picture via Flying Lotus' Myspace
Our Pick: Low End Theory 3 Year Anniversary w/ Flying Lotus, Free The Robots, SAMIYAM, Kutmah @ The Airliner
Tonight Swedish rockers the Sounds will be headlining the Wiltern with none other than local dance-infused rock outfit Moving Units (LAist Review) in tow.
Memphis-bred garage punk troubadour Jay Reatard is poised to take on the El Rey Theatre (Canceled!). And, lastly, English indie rock act the Heavy (LAist Interview) will be gracing the Echo. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Airliner in Lincoln Heights to catch Flying Lotus, who will be performing in honor of Low End Theory's 3 year anniversary.
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.
