Our Pick: Vivian Girls, Best Coast, Dunes, Animal Style @ The Smell

Tonight LA-based Cambodian rock outfit Dengue Fever (LAist Interview, Review) will be performing at the El Rey Theatre, sharing the stage with legendary ska outfit Hepcat and the Lions for KCRW's Haiti Relief Concert. Brooklyn-bred alternative rock sextet They Might Be Giants are poised to take on not one, but two shows at Largo at the Coronet. And, lastly, Brooklyn-based folk rock troubadour Langhorne Slim (LAist Review, #2) will be gracing McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Mon Mon. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Smell in Downtown to catch Brooklyn's own punk rock trio Vivian Girls. LAist favorites, lo-fi pop act Best Coast are slated to kick things off.

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.
