Week In Rock: CocoRosie, Blitzen Trapper, Dum Dum Girls, Tame Impala
This week French "freak folk" outfit CocoRosie will be headlining the Orpheum Theatre in support of their latest endeavor—2010's Grey Oceans—with none other than LA-based rapper Busdriver (LAist Review, #2) and Sao Paulo's self-proclaimed purveyor of tropical punk, Cibelle. Portland's own experimental rock sextet Blitzen Trapper (LAist Interview) will be headlining the El Rey Theatre with Seattle-based folk rock quartet the Moondoggies. Local garage pop quartet Dum Dum Girls are poised to take on the Echo as a part of their reunion tour with San Diegan garage rockers Crocodiles (LAist Inteview) in tow. And, finally, Australian psych rock quartet Tame Impala will be making their LA debut: not only performing once at Spaceland, opening up for Echo Park's own electro dance duo Rainbow Arabia, but also headlining the Silver Lake Lounge in support of their studio debut—2010'sInnerspeaker.
