This week Virginia-bred alternative country songstress Neko Case will be performing at the Greek Theatre with Grandaddy front man Jason Lytle. Canadian rockers the Tragically Hip are poised to take on a three-night stint at the Troubadour. South London-based singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf will be gracing the Roxy in Hollywood. And, lastly, local electronic mastermind Nosaj Thing is ringing in his debut disc, 2009's Drift, at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights.
