The Bird and the Bee

The Bird and the Bee will be playing Monday at the Echoplex | Photo by Koga for LAist

This week Canadian poet, novelist and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen will be taking on a two-date stint at Club Nokia in Downtown. Local indie pop duo the Bird and the Bee (LAist Review, #2) are slated to headline the Echoplex with LAist favorite Juliette Commagere (LAist Interview, Review) in tow. Israeli shock rock troupe Monotonix (LAist Review) will be letting it all hang out at Spaceland. And, lastly, Portland-based folk songstress Mirah is poised to grace the Echo.
