Our Pick: Best Coast, Dunes @ Troubadour

Tonight local rockers Fistful of Mercy, a fledgling supergroup consisting of Dhani Harrison, Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur, will be gracing the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever. Norfolk-bred indie rock outfit Mae are poised to headline the El Rey Theatre. And, lastly, San Franciscan alternative country outfit Or, The Whale will be gracing Spaceland. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to catch LA-based lo-fi pop act Best Coast, who will be performing at the Troubadour. It'll be your one of your last opportunities to catch them before they open for ... Weezer? Yeh, weird. LAist favorites, local post-punk act Dunes are slated to kick things off.
