Didn't get enough of M.I.A. at Coachella? Didn't catch her this weekend as she opened for LCD Soundsystem at the El Rey? Need more Galang Galang Galang?! Yeah, we do too. Thankfully she continues her love affair with Los Angeles tonight with a show at The Echo. Diplo is in tow as usual so you know the beats will be ridiculous and, thus, the crowd dancing will be frenetic. The show is sold out but you might be able to fanagle your way in tonight. Doors open at 8:30. The bhangra influenced dance party starts at 9 PM.
