Our Pick: Born Ruffians, Plants and Animals, Nurses @ Spaceland

Tonight the one and only, eight time Grammy Award-winning singer Tina Turner will stop by the Staples Center. It will be your last opportunity to catch the "Queen of Rock & Roll" before she heads off to peruse the rest of the world. Canadian singer-songwriters and identical twins Tegan and Sara will be kicking off a four-night sold-out stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box. And in what appears to be the umpteenth appearance this year, Austin's own electro-pop stars Ghostland Observatory will be playing at the Mayan. We doubt they've got anything new up their sleeves since the last time we saw them. And, lastly, Birmingham-based alternative rock band Wild Sweet Orange are slated to perform at the Hotel Café, along with Oakland-based Audrye Sessions. But we recommend paying Spaceland a visit to catch Toronto's own Born Ruffians. The jittery indie rockers will be testing out new songs from their latest endeavor, 2008's Red Yellow Blue.
