This week iconic folk rock singer-songwriter Bob Dylan will be taking on a three-night stint at the Hollywood Palladium. Long Island-bred pop punk outfit Brand New are poised to make their long-awaited return to Los Angeles, performing twice at the Hollywood Palladium as well with Atlanta-based indie rock act Manchester Orchestra and Portland's own folk rockers the Builders and the Butchers (LAist Interview) in tow. Canadian electro pop duo the Junior Boys will be headlining the El Rey Theatre. And, lastly, Toronto-bred folk rock outfit Great Lake Swimmers (LAist Interview) will be gracing the El Rey Theatre with none other than former American Analog Set front man Andrew Kenny's latest endeavor the Wooden Birds.
