Our Pick: A Benefit for the Pablove Foundation w/ Eulogies, Avi Buffalo, Bad Veins, A Decent Animal @ The Echo
Tonight San Diego-based alternative rockers Stone Temple Pilots will be performing for a sold-out crowd the House of Blues Sunset. Maryland-based singer-songwriter Bill Callahan is poised to headline the Troubadour with Bachelorette in tow. And, lastly, local retro 60s soul act Fitz and the Tantrums will be gracing Spaceland for this week's edition of Club NME. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to partake in a Benefit for the Pablove Foundation, established earlier this year to help fight childhood cancer. Pablo Castelaz, the son of Dangerbird Records' co-founder Jeff Castelaz, was a beautiful 6-year-old boy—wise beyond his years—who passed from this life last Saturday. He was battling with Wilm's Tumor, a form of cancer that most often strikes children. Local indie rockers Eulogies (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3), Bad Veins and Avi Buffalo (LAist Interview, Review) are all slated to take stage in his honor.
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.
