Castledoor will be premiering their first music video ever tonight at the Lyric Hyperion Theater | Picture via Castledoor's Myspace

Our Pick: Castledoor, Tenlons Fort @ Lyric Hyperion Theater

There certainly won't be any complaints regarding the lack of interesting shows tonight. We've got the circus-like antics of Philly's Man Man at the Echoplex, which will be appropriately paired with the epic yet disjointed work of Long Beach's Crystal Antlers. The relatively clandestine Pehrspace promises an exemplary triumvirate of Los Angeles-based indie rockers, including Marvelous Toy, Divisadero and One Trick Pony. The show will serve as an album release party for the first two bands. And it's beginning to seem like Jon Brion is always slumped over a piano at Largo. However, the big surprise of the night is the not-so-secret Spiritualized show at the Echo. Thanks to Myspace Secret Shows the concert will be free, but upon a first-come first-served basis. Those willing to brave the inordinate crowds and chaos will likely be treated to an unforgettable experience, which will presumably revolve around 2008's A&E. As much as we like Spiritualized (and standing in serpentine lines), we suggest you head over to catch Silverlake-based indie-pop maestros Castledoor at the Lyric Hyperion Theater. The band will be premiering the new music video for their leading track "Dumpster Diving," as well as affording fans a special set. Tenlons Fort, who appear to be straddling Austin and LA right now, are slated to open the night, heading directly over from their Little Radio-sponsored Park[ing] Day LA performance at 4th & Main in Downtown.
