Whether you consider the Airborne Toxic Event to be L.A.’s answer to Coldplay or art-rock usurpers of the Killers and Silversun Pickups, frontman Mikel Jollett's voice—an offbeat and weirdly compelling mix of Iggy Pop and Billy Joel—is just too strong to be denied. Expect to hear from the band's upcoming third album tonight.
