Our Pick: Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles, Dunes, Soft Healer @ The Echo

Tonight Toronto-based alternative rockers Sloan, who were present at last night's Hot Hot Heat show, will be headlining the House of Blues Sunset. Hottlanta-based rocker Kaki King is poised to head a Gulf Coast Benefit at the Mint with none other than Ben Lee, Carina Round, and Rachael Cantu. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit Saint Motel (LAist Interview) will be kicking the Hammer Museum's summer concert series 'Also I Like To Rock' into gear with the talk of town: local rock outfit Kitten, which of course features 15-year-old frontwoman Chloe Chaidez. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch the reunion of local garage pop quartet Dum Dum Girls, who recently re-released a 11-track cassette aptly entitled Blissed Out. LAist favorites, San Diegan garage rockers Crocodiles (LAist Inteview) are slated to kick things off.

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