Tonight in Rock: Working for a Nuclear Free City
It's Monday and that means it's a big residency night in Los Angeles. And since it's the first Monday of March, that means a new list of Monday night bands below.
Of note tonight, Working for a Nuclear Free City (pictured right) will be playing along Spaceland's March Monday night tenant -- Voxhaul Broadcast.
Also, another very exciting residency that begins tonight are The Chapin Sisters, whose profile rose when they covered Britney Spears' "Toxic," in a much better way (they also did a nice version of Madonna's "Borderline").
