Tonight In Rock: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arctic Monkeys, Fanfarlo, Nurses
Nurses will be performing tonight at the Echo | Photo by Paul Wagenblast via Nurses' Myspace
Our Pick: Throw Me The Statue, The Brunettes, Devon Williams, Nurses @ The Echo
Tonight NY-based alternative rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs (LAist Review) will be headlining the Pomona Fox Theater. English alternative rockers Arctic Monkeys are poised to take on the Hollywood Palladium with local pop rockers the Like. London's own indie pop act Fanfarlo will be gracing the Troubadour with Raleigh-bred lo-fi pop outfit Love Language. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch Portland-based indie rockers Nurses, who will be opening for none other than Seattle's own pop quartet Throw Me The Statue. One of New Zealand's finest acts the Brunettes and local singer-songwriter Devon Williams are slated to perform as well.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which (generally) goes up every Sunday.
