Our Pick: Chief, Haim, Grouplove @ Troubadour

Tonight Echo Park's own electro dance duo Rainbow Arabia will be taking on the second night of their residency, headlining the Echo. Long Beach-based indie rockers We Barbarians are poised to continue their month-long residency as well at Spaceland. And, lastly, local singer-songwriter Willoughby will be gracing the Silver Lake Lounge, warming up the stage for Line And Circle. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch Santa Monica's own indie rock troubadours Chief, who recently inked a deal with Domino Records.

Have no fear! Week In Rock will be up later this afternoon!
