Tonight In Rock: Wye Oak, Xu Xu Fang, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, The Company of Thieves
Company of Thieves will be playing tonight at the Knitting Factory | Picture via the Company of Thieves' Myspace
Our Pick: The Higher, Company of Thieves, The Dandelions, Wendy Darling @ Knitting Factory (Main Stage)
Tonight Baltimore-based indie rockers Wye Oak will be performing at the Silver Lake Lounge with Cincinnati's crown jewel Pomegranates in tow. Local psych rock outfit Xu Xu Fang are poised to ring in their latest disc with LAist favorites the Voyeurs (LAist Interview) and Downtown/Union, who will be celebrating a record release of their own as well. And, lastly, LA-based buzz band Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros will be gracing the Regent Theater in Downtown with local blues-rock duo Rumspringa (LAist Review, #2). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Knitting Factory's Main Stage to catch Chicago-based pop rock trio Company of Thieves.
