Tonight In Rock: U2, Tegan And Sara, The Parson Red Heads, Learning Music
Learning Music will be performing today at Bedrock Studios | Picture via Learning Music's Myspace
Our Pick: Bedrocktoberfest w/ Learning Music, Fort Wife, Evan Way (of the Parson Red Heads) @ Bedrock Studios (FREE! Early Show; 2-6 PM)
Tonight legendary Dublin-bred alternative rockers U2 will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the Rose Bowl with none other than the Black Eyed Peas. Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan and Sara are poised to take on a two-night stint at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown. And, lastly, local indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) will be gracing Casey's Irish Bar & Grill. But we strongly suggest heading over to the newly opened Bedrock Studios (LAist Interview) to catch local prolific songwriter John Wood, who performs under the pseudonym Learning Music. LA-based singer-songwriter Evan Way of the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3) is poised to perform as well.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.
