This week critically-acclaimed New York-based experimental rock trio Liars will be headlining the El Rey Theatre with none other than local indie rockers Fol Chen—a couple of whom will be partaking in the Liars' set in fact. English jazz-infused soul singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae is poised to perform to a sold-out crowd at Vibiana, a former Archdiocese cathedral built in 1876 in Downtown. We're told that not only is it the first time they've opened the doors at the aforementioned venue for a major ticketed music event, but it will also be the first time KCRW has ever recorded one of its live concerts for future broadcast on the station; It will air in its entirety April 9th on Morning Becomes Eclectic. LA-by-way-of-New Orleans alternative hip hop duo the Knux (LAist Interview) will be gracing Spaceland with local indie rockers the Holloys in tow. And, lastly, beloved Beulah front man, Portland-based singer-songwriter Miles Kurosky will be taking on the Echo.

The Knux - "Fuck You"

Liars - "No Barrier Fun"
