Dios (Malos) will be playing tonight at the Hotel Café | Picture via Dios (Malos)' Myspace

Our Pick: Buddyhead Christmas Party w/ Dead Meadow, The Entrance Band, Josh Homme, Jeordie ‘Twiggy’ White, Sweethead, Aaron North, Troy ‘Boy’ Petrey & Fiends, Alain Johannes, Nick Jago, Xu Xu Fang, Dean Fertita, Alessandro Cortini, Wires On Fire, Dios (Malos), HT Heartache, Sid Brown, Todd Congelliere, Tony Bevilacqua, Birthday Twin, Brandon Intelligator & The Sheriffs, Tsk Tsk @ The Hotel Café

Tonight New Orleans-based rapper Lil' Wayne is slated to headline the Gibson Amphitheatre. LA's own electronic genius Daedelus will be headlining the Echoplex and will be accompanied by Busdriver, the Mae Shi, Rumspringa and the Entrance Band. And although that stellar bill is all too enticing, we strongly recommend stopping by the Hotel Café for Buddyhead's Christmas Party. A trough full of celebrated local musicians, like QOTSA front man Josh Homme, Dead Meadow front man Jason Simon, Xu Xu Fang (LAist Review, #2, #3) and LAist favorites Dios (Malos) (LAist Interview), will preside over the unruly procession.
