Our Pick: Fanfarlo, Freelance Whales @ The Echo

Tonight Irvine-bred heavy rock outfit Thrice will be headlining the Avalon with none other than Boston-based experimental rock act the Dear Hunter. NY's own experimental musical duo the Books (LAist Review) are poised to grace the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever. And, lastly, local indie rockers the Happy Hollows (LAist Review, #2, #3) will be taking on the penultimate night of their month-long residency at Spaceland with New Jersey-based psych-infused indie rockers Real Estate, One Trick Pony and Dios (Malos) (LAist Interview, Review, #2). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch British indie pop quintet Fanfarlo (LAist Interview). LAist favorites, Queens' own indie pop buzz band Freelance Whales are slated to kick things off.
