Our Pick: Luke Top, My Pet Saddle @ Pershing Square

Tonight local alt-rockers Dawes will be taking on their second residency of the week (their first takes place at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa every Monday) at the Echo with Slang Chickens in tow. Experimental punk outfit Abe Vigoda are poised to take on the Smell. And, lastly, Echo Park-bred indie rock quartet Wait.Think.Fast. will be gracing La Cita. But we strongly suggest heading over to Pershing Square in Downtown to catch LAist favorite, LA-via-Tel Aviv transplant Luke Top—who may also be recognized as the front man of local afro-centric indie pop outfit Fool's Gold. Fullerton's own garage rockers My Pet Saddle are slated to kick things off.
