It's going to be a busy night in Los Angeles—the weather has cooled off and fall is creeping in, so LAist recommends going out and partaking of all the fine entertainments the city has to offer before everyone gives up on their sunny summer dispositions.

Tonight at The Echo, LA's own (increasingly popular) Rilo Kiley will play a final date in town before hitting the road on their fall tour. Doors open at 8:00 PM and tickets are $12.00.

At the Troubadour, The Datsuns will be rocking the stage, along with The Chelsea Smiles and Louis XIV, starting at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $15.00.

In film, director Amy Heckerling and producer Art Linson will be answering questions following a special 7:30 PM screening of the immortal Sean Penn vehicle Fast Times at Ridgemont High at the ArcLight.

At LACMA, there will be a preview screening of The Motorcycle Diaries, an adaptation of the autobiographical book chronicling revolutionary Che Guevara's two-wheeled trip across South America. The film begins at 7:30 PM.

Today is also the first day of previews for The Ten Commandments at the Kodak Theatre. Though we all know how the story ends, LAist thinks it will be worth it to see Val Kilmer play Moses.

Also, at 8:00 PM, head for the Egyptian Theatre for the monthly RES Magazine showcase. This month features a special look at classic motion title design, as well as new videos from Kyle Cooper, Karin Fong and David Peters, and music from DJ Damon Way and DJ Kiino Villand. Tickets are $10.00.
