Our Pick: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Girls, Champagne Socialists @ The Echo
Tonight psych folk act Pocahaunted (LAist Review) will be headlining the Smell in Downtown. Costa Mesa-based garage rockers the Growlers will be supporting Japanese Motors on the third night of their month-long residency at Spaceland. And, lastly, local indie rock outfit Last American Buffalo are poised to grace the Silver Lake Lounge with Spirit Vine and the Steelwells in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echo to catch NY's own indie rockers Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. San Franciscan lo-fi rock outfit Girls will be kicking 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.
