Our Pick: The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, The Depreciation Guild Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Troubadour

Tonight showtune maestros Pink Martini (LAist Interview, Review) will be headlining the Hollywood Bowl. Canadian indie rockers the Most Serene Republic are poised to take on Spaceland with Brisbane-bred trio the Grates. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit the Henry Clay People will be performing at the Lobster Festival at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Troubadour to catch NY-bred indie pop act the Pains of Being Pure at Heart (LAist Interview).

You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which (generally) goes up every Sunday.
