Tonight LA will be commandeered by female singer-songwriters. New Orleans-based "one-woman band" Theresa Andersson (LAist Interview) is slated to headline the Hotel Café. And Hawaiian-born singer-songwriter Sara Lov will be continuing her Tuesday Night Residency at Spaceland. In other non-female-fronted news, LA-based indie rockers Pop Noir will be kicking things into gear at the Echoplex. And, lastly, Les Blanks and a handful of talented locals, including LAist favorites One Trick Pony, are poised to put on a free show at the Echo. But we strongly suggest checking into the Dakota Lounge to catch the talented and lovely Mia Doi Todd.
