Extra Golden

Extra Golden will be playing Wednesday at the Echo | Picture via Extra Golden's Myspace

This week Scottish post-rock outfit Mogwai will be headlining the Orpheum Theatre with local pysch rockers Dead Meadow in tow. English indie rock band Doves are poised to grace the Wiltern with Massachusetts-based buzz band Wild Light (LAist Review). New Orleans-by-way-of-Norway one-woman band Theresa Andersson (LAist Interview, Review) will be performing at Largo at the Coronet. And, lastly, half-American, half-Kenyan Benga rockers Extra Golden are performing at the Echo. LA-based afrocentric pop act Fool's Gold are slated to kick things off.
