Our Pick: Telepathe, Abe Vigoda, Nite Jewel, Blue Jungle @ The Smell

Tonight Brooklyn-based soul/funk group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will be performing at the Hollywood Bowl for the Playboy Jazz Festival. Norwegian electro-pop act Datarock are poised to headline the Key Club in Hollywood. And, lastly, local rockers War Tapes will be gracing the streets of Long Beach (Long Beach Blvd. & Broadway, to be exact) with Deep Sea Diver (LAist Review) among many other talented locals for 2009's Tour Des Artistes. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Smell in Downtown to catch synth-infused pop act Telepathe. LAist favorites Nite Jewel and Abe Vigoda slated to kick things off.
