Tonight In Rock: Them Crooked Vultures, The Drums, Mississippi Man, Bomba Estéreo
The Drums will be performing tonight at Spaceland | Picture via the Drums Myspace
Our Pick: The Happy Hollows, The Drums, Evan Way, Random Patterns @ Spaceland (FREE!)
Tonight LA-based rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures , which is comprised of Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, John Paul Jones and Alain Johannes, will be performing last minute at the Roxy . Local folk-infused pop outfit Mississippi Man are poised to continue their residency at the Silver Lake Lounge with the Color Turning in tow. And, lastly, Bogotá-based experimental electro quintet Bomba Estéreo will be performing in-store at Amoeba Music in Hollyweird. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch local indie rockers the Happy Hollows (LAist Review , #2 , #3 ). LAist favorites, Brooklyn-bred surf-infused post-punk act the Drums and Parson Red Heads front man Evan Way 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.
