For the next three Thursdays in a row, local psychadelic indie powerpop outfit West Indian Girl is headlining at Spaceland in Silver Lake. The first show (tonight) will draw exclusively from their critically-acclaimed eponymous 2004 debut, featuring hits like What Are You Afraid Of, Hollywood, Miles From Monterey, and Still Lost. Their Nov. 13 set will pull from their 2007 sophomore effort, 4th & Wall, with popular songs To Die In LA, Blue Wave, Sofia and the enthusiastic Get Up. Their Spaceland residency will end on Nov. 20 with a set full of brand-new tunes they're considering for their forthcoming (still-untitled) third album, which is expected to hit stores sometime in 2009.
And the best part is, you can see these shows for FREE. For details, read West Indian Girl's blog.
