Tonight In Rock: Villagers, Bear In Heaven, Phosphorescent, Geneva Jacuzzi, POLLS
Our Pick: Bear in Heaven, Twin Sister, Beach Fossils @ The Echo
Tonight Conor J. O'Brien, or Villagers rather, a critically-acclaimed, young Dubliner who is making waves with his Mercury Prize-nominated debut—2010's Becoming a Jackal—will be gracing the Hotel Café with his full band. Brooklyn-by-way-of-Athens indie folk/alt country troubadour Matthew Houck, who performs under the pseudonym Phosphorescent, is poised to take on the Troubadour with none other than Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman in support of Houck's fifth studio-album&mdash2010's Here's to Taking It Easy. Local indie rock trio POLLS will be ringing in their self-titled EP at the Bootleg Theater with Highland Park-based psych-infused synth pop act Random Patterns. And, lastly (yes, lastly), Geneva Garvin, an experimental electro songstress who performs under the pseudonym Geneva Jacuzzi, will be performing at the Echoplex. But we strongly suggest heading upstairs to the Echo to catch Brooklyn-based psych-tinged indie rock outfit Bear in Heaven. LAist favorites, Long Island's own indie pop quintet Twin Sister and Brooklyn-based lo-fi indie rockers Beach Fossils are slated to kick things off.
Bear In Heaven - "You Do You"
Twin Sister - "Lady Daydream"
Beach Fossils - "Youth"
