As RCA told you earlier, The Sounds will be playing at The Wiltern tonight. On the heels of a performance that Ryan described, you’d be silly not to see them if you have the time and the loot (I believe you can still get a ticket).

Echo and Echoplex are both cooking something good in the indie kitchen – some shoegazing psychedelic rock from the North by the names of the Thee Oh Sees and The Fresh & Onlys are descending upon the Echo and a little bit brighter indie downstairs at the larger Echoplex where Liam Finn, is performing fresh from Ann Arbor, where he played with Wilco, and playing on the same stage will be The 88 and Jason Lytle. Check out “Second Chance” and some of his other tunes on his myspace page here.
For a unique and eclectic mix of music, check out Boom D spinning downstairs at the Key Club, with his other Cleveland homie J Brains, for Paz‘s event. Swollen Members will be upstairs popping hip-hop heads in the main room.
If you want to get soulful – check out the El Rey where the veteran MeShell N’dgeocello is being supported by rising R & B artist J*Davey.
