Tonight In Rock: Vieux Farka Touré, The Hold Steady, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Fishtank Ensemble

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Our Pick: Vieux Farka Touré, Luke Top @ Troubadour

Tonight Brooklyn-based rockers the Hold Steady will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the El Rey Theatre with El Bronx in tow (that would be the Bronx you know, only performing mariachi songs). English country/blues trio Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are poised to grace the Echo with none other than local indie rockers Le Switch. And, lastly, Oakland-bred Euro-American musical group Fishtank Ensemble will be performing at Bordello. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Malian singer and guitarist Vieux Farka Touré, son of one of the African continent’s most internationally renowned musicians Ali Farka Touré. LAist favorite, LA-via-Tel Aviv transplant Luke Top—also known as Fool's Gold front man—is slated to kick things off.
