Tonight in Rock: Macy Gray, The Vacation, The Entrance Band

Tickets are still amazingly available for tonight's intimate Macy Gray show at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. For something a little more rock n' roll, Hell Ya! and Girl School are teaming up in their monthly residency at The Viper Room with The Vacation in the first night of their weekly February residency (for a guide to February residencies, check this out). Otherwise, there is truly something for everyone tonight -- we recommend some psychedelic rock with The Entrance Band, Thursday night residents at the Silverlake Lounge.
