White Williams is opening for Vampire Weekend at the Wiltern tonight | Joe Williams via White William's Myspace

Our Pick: Vampire Weekend, White Wiliams, Abe Vigoda @ The Wiltern

Tough choices tonight in Los Angeles. We've got the battle between cataclysmic psych-infused pop and hair metal (MGMT, RTX) at Henry Fonda Theater, Brooklyn-based folk rocker Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson and Eagle Rock's fresh-fraced Princeton at the rather homely Vermont House and, of course, the opening night of Vampire Weekend's two-date stint at the Wiltern. We suggest hitting up Vampire Weekend and saving MGMT for the Hollywood Bowl spectacular later this week, but only because we're really excited for openers White Williams and Abe Vigoda. Does it get any better than that?
