This week two of the most prominent women in indie folk rock, Mirah and Thao Nguyen, will be combining forces, backing one another at the Bootleg Theater in what will invariably be deemed a once-in-a-lifetime experience. LA-by-way-of-Michigan retro soul singer-songwriter Mayer Hawthorne is poised to perform at the Getty Center for this month's edition of 'Saturdays off the 405.' Spanish electro pop outfit Delorean will be ringing in their third studio album, 2010's Subiza, at the Echo with Echo Park-bred bilingual, genre-bending quartet Wait.Think.Fast.. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit the Henry Clay People will be headlining Spaceland in celebration of their latest effort, 2010's Somewhere on the Golden Coast, which is set for release June 8th on TBD Records.

Thao With The Get Down Stay Down - "Swimming Pools"

Mirah - "The Dogs of B.A."
