Our Pick: Ty Segall, YellowFever, Royal Bathe, Moonhearts @ The Smell

Tonight Brooklyn-bred hip hop artist and Definitive Jux co-founder/owner/CEO, Jamie Meline, better known by his stage name El-P, will be headlining the Airliner for this week's edition of Low End Theory in celebration of his recently released mixtape—2010's Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3. San Diegan lo-fi/noise pop outfit Wavves, who just released their third studio-album entitled King of the Beach, are poised to take on Madame Wong's in what will unfortunately be one of the venue's final shows; The former Chinatown restaurant-turned-punk concert hall will shutter its doors permanently soon hereafter. And, lastly, Ventura's own indie rockers Franklin for Short, who concluded a stint with Kings of Convenience not long ago and released their sixth studio-album entitled Dark Cloud, will be performing at the Bootleg Theater, warming up the stage for the Elected bassist Michael Runion. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Smell in Downtown to catch San Franciscan psych-infused garage rocker Ty Segall, who is touring in support of his latest tour de force—2010's Melted. LAist favorites, Austinites Yellowfever and Bay Area garage rockers Moonhearts are slated to kick things off.
