Tonight In Rock: Thom Yorke, School of Seven Bells, WPA, Light FM
Light FM will be performing tonight at Spaceland | Picture via Light FM's Myspace
Our Pick: Light FM, We Barbarians, Tigers Can Bite You, Queen Kwong @ Spaceland (FREE!)
Tonight Radiohead front man Thom Yorke will be closing out a sold-out two-night stint at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown with local experimental electronic act Lucky Dragons. Brooklyn-based shoegaze-infused electronic trio School of Seven Bells (LAist Review) are poised to take on the Troubadour with local indie rock outfit Warpaint (LAist Review, #2, #3) and NY's latest buzz band Phantogram. And, lastly, WPA, or rather Works Progress Administration—a Santa Barbara-bred supergroup formed from a prominent community of musicians who frequent the Largo, including Sean and Sara Watkins, as well as Glen Phillips—will be performing for their first time at the Largo at the Coronet. But we strongly suggest heading over to Spaceland to catch the opening night of local indie pop outfit Light FM's month-long residency. LAist favorites We Barbarians and Tigers Can Bite You are slated to kick things off. Yours truly will be DJing in between sets.
Do not fret! Week In Rock will be going up later today!
