Our Pick: GO VOTE!
Tonight LA will pause for the election. However, dj/producer Diplo and LA rockers Abe Vigoda will be playing at the Echoplex. Dead Ponies will be playing at Spaceland for free! HoneyHoney (LAist Review, #2) will be performing at the Hotel Café. And, lastly, St. Albans own electro-pop sensation Friendly Fires will be gracing Cinespace in Hollyweird. But we suggest you take the night off to vote and watch the results of the election.
