Our Pick: Dawes, Richie James Follin, Roses Kings Castles (Adam from Babyshambles) @ Echoplex (Free before 10:30 PM)

Tonight is the calm before the NYE storm. French Rumba Flamenca outfit the Gipsy Kings are slated to headline the newly renovated Conga Room (LAist Review). Atlanta-based R&B singer-songwriter Akon will be performing at Club Nokia in Downtown. And speaking of Downtown, a slew of punk-inflected bands are poised to rock the Smell. But we strongly suggest that you head over to the Echoplex to catch local alt-rockers Dawes. Get there early and get in for free!
