Tonight In Rock: Vampire Weekend, Abe Vigoda, Frankie Rose & The Outs
Tonight NY-bred indie pop outfit Vampire Weekend (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) will be headlining the Hollywood Bowl with Baltimore-bred dream pop duo Beach House and the Very Best, an eclectic musical amalgam comprised of London based production duo Radioclit and Malawi-bred crooner Esau Mwamwaya. LA-based experimental punk outfit Abe Vigoda are slated to perform at this year's Abbot Kinney Festival with none other than Long Beach natives Crystal Antlers (LAist Review), Puro Instincto, LA-based alt-rockers Olin & the Moon (LAist Interview), Voxhaul Broadcast, Kenneth Pattengale and many more. Ex-Vivian Girls drummer Frankie Rose & the Outs will be ringing in their debut disc at the Echo with LA-by-way-of-Glasgow retro 50s/60s pop outfit Neverever for this week's edition of Part Time Punks.
