Don't let the rain stop you from experiencing one of the hands down best nights in music that Los Angeles has to offer. Every month, the Watkins Family Hour performs at Largo at the Coronet, in what is the some of the freshest folk music this city has to offer. Solid musicianship, a love for their music and family and friends make this monthly show a gem among the thousands of music shows every month. Tonight, they will be joined by Ben Lee and, as usual, unannounced special guests, which in the past has ranged from good friends to Fiona Apple (read our individual interviews with the family, Sara and Sean)

The full listings are below and our Week in Rock post will take you through the weekend.
