Young the Giant
If you’re looking for something to do on this potentially stormy Saturday night, head on down to The Roxy on Sunset to check out Young the Giant with We Barbarians and Kitten for an awesome night of in-your-face alt-rock.

They're definitely a band to keep an eye on--according to their Facebook updates, it seems like they've been everywhere and doing everything. If you haven't heard of them now, you will hear of them soon. Furthermore, they’ll be playing the highly anticipated SXSW (check out other artists playing the festival here), as will We Barbarians, so here’s your chance to get a preview!
