My Brightest Diamond will be playing tonight at the Hotel Café | Picture via My Brightest Diamond's Myspace

Our Pick: My Brightest Diamond, Clare & The Reasons @ The Hotel Café

Tonight NY-based rapper Nas (LAist Review) will be performing at Club Nokia. OC's finest pop rockers Hellogoodbye are slated to play a sold-out show at the Knitting Factory. LA-based psych-rockers the Entrance Band will be stopping by the Airliner for Low End Theory Club night. And on that peculiar note, Americana act Dawes are partying at the posh confines of the Standard Hotel in Downtown. If you're looking for something that's free, then head over to the Echo to catch a wondrous bill of LA locals, including the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (LAist Review, #2), Obi Best and Princeton (LAist Interview). But we suggest shelling out a few dollars to catch a glimpse of singer-songwriter Shara Worden's ethereal world. You may remember her name from Sufjan Stevens' immaculate catalog. Brooklyn-based My Brightest Diamond will be playing the Hotel Café with Clare & The Reasons.
