Tonight In Rock: The Swell Season, Broken Bells, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Crystal Antlers
Our Pick: Broken Bells @ Troubadour (SOLD-OUT)
Tonight the Swell Season, an indie folk duo formed by Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová, will be performing at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Mon Mon. Local psych-infused indie rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (LAist Interview) are poised to conclude their three-night stint at the Echoplex. And, lastly, Long Beach natives Crystal Antlers (LAist Review) will be taking on the Smell in Downtown. But we strongly suggest selling your body (or your time, whichever way you look at it) to get into the Troubadour to catch Broken Bells—the brainchild of the Shins front man James Mercer and producer/musician extraordinaire Danger Mouse.
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.
