Tonight In Rock: Tim Kasher, Nosaj Thing, The Soft Pack, Sonny & The Sunsets
Tennis will be performing tonight at the Echo | Picture via Tennis' Myspace
Our Pick: Sonny & the Sunsets, Tennis, The Belle Brigade @ The Echo
Tonight Cursive front man Tim Kasher will be headlining the Bootleg Theater. Local electronic mastermind Nosaj Thing is poised to take on the El Rey Theatre with South Carolina-bred experimental electro pop maestro Chaz Budnick, who performs under the moniker Toro Y Moi. And, lastly, San Diegan garage rockers the Soft Pack will be gracing the Echoplex with Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Kurt Vile and the Violators. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch San Franciscan "beach-pop" quartet Sonny & the Sunsets. LAist favorites, Denver's own husband-wife duo Tennis are slated to kick things off.
Tennis - "Take Me Somewhere"
Sonny & The Sunsets - "Too Young To Burn"
Tim Kasher - "Cold Love"
Nosaj Thing - "1685/Bach"
Toro Y Moi - "Blessa"
The Soft Pack - "Extinction"
Kurt Vile - "Freeway"
