Weekend Concerts: Autumn Defense, Tennis, Lord Huron

Autumn DefenseWhile I do most of my L.A. music coverage over in Brand X, I’m going to start doing concert previews here more often, at least when there are concerts worth covering. This weekend offers several:

On Friday: Charming-enough garage-pop duo Tennis, with Lord Huron set to open (and also to blow the headliners off the court) at the Echo; and at the Echoplex, Ólafur Arnalds’ dark orchestrations.

On Saturday: The Autumn Defense‘s (pictured) ’70s-soaked folk-pop at the Troubadour.

Lord Huron – “Mighty”: mp3
