Our Pick: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Weekend, Sonny and the Sunsets @ Echoplex

Tonight Canadian indie rock quintet Stars will be headlining the Wiltern with none other than San Franciscan indie pop trio Geographer in tow. LA-by-way-of-Michigan retro soul singer-songwriter Mayer Hawthorne is poised to grace the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater with actor/writer/comedian/MC Donald Glover, who performs under the pseudonym Childish Gambino. And, lastly, LA-based Cambodian rock outfit Dengue Fever will be providing the live score for the stop-motion film "The Lost World" at UCLA's Royce Hall. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch NY-bred indie pop act the Pains of Being Pure at Heart (LAist Interview). LAist favorites, San Franciscan post-punk trio Weekend, who recently released one of 2010's most satisfyingly noisy discs, Sports, and "beach-pop" quartet Sonny & the Sunsets are slated to kick things off.
