Tonight In Rock: Walking Sleep, Pollyn, Mystery Claws, Rangers
Our Pick: Walking Sleep's record release, Pearly Gate Music, The Good Listeners @ Bootleg Theater
Tonight LA-bred electro pop trio Pollyn will be gracing Bordello with none other than local indie pop quartet Robotanists. Mystery Claws, a side-project of Princeton's Matt Kivel that also features Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa, are poised to ring in their debut—2010's Hydaspia—at the hole-and-corner Pehrspace. And, lastly, San Francisco-by-way-of-Dallas experimental psych troubadour Joe Knight, who performs under the pseudonym Rangers, will be taking on Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Bootleg Theater to catch Walking Sleep, the venerable local indie rock outfit formerly known as the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (LAist Review, #2, #3); The band will be celebrating the release of their debut record, 2010's Measures. LAist favorites, Seattle's most promising talent, folk singer-songwriter Zach Tillman, otherwise known as Pearly Gate Music, or the younger brother of Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman, is poised to kick things off.
