Our Pick: The Death Set @ The Echo

Tonight LA is taking a breather. We've got the second night of Durham-based folk rockers the Mountain Goats' two-date stint at the Troubadour with Kaki King. Ian MacKaye, of Minor Threat and Fugazi fame, will be doing a Q&A session at Hollywood High. And, lastly, LA-based singer-songwriter Rachael Cantu will be playing the final night of her month-long residency at Tangier. But we recommend heading over to the Echo to rock out with Baltimore-by-way-of-Australia the Death Set. The electro-punk duo will surely raise hell.
