This week Anaheim-based ska-infused pop outfit No Doubt will be headlining the Gibson Amphitheatre twice and the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater twice with Grammy-nominated pop punk outfit Paramore and Swedish new wave rockers the Sounds in tow. Virginia Beach-based funk/hip hop group N*E*R*D are poised to take on the Avalon. English musician Jarvis Cocker, best known as the front man of legendary Sheffield-based alternative rockers Pulp, will be gracing the Wiltern with local indie pop outfit Little Joy. And, lastly, Los Angeles' own "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," Culver City-based DJ/selector DâM-FunK will be performing at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, ringing in his debut LP—Toeachizown Vol. 1: LAtrik—with none other than local electronic musician/producer/MC Thavius Beck.
