Our Pick: Mogwai, Dead Meadow @ Orpheum Theatre

Tonight NY-based alternative rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs (LAist Review), among many other prominent rockers including hometown heroes Silversun Pickups (LAist Review, #2) and the Airborne Toxic Event (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3, #4, #5), will be performing at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for this year's edition of KROQ's famed "Weenie Roast" (LAist Review). English indie rockers Doves are poised to headline the Wiltern with none other than Massachusetts-based buzz band Wild Light (LAist Review). And, lastly, Birmingham's own indie-pop duo O+S will be gracing the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown to catch prolific Scottish post-rockers Mogwai. LAist favorites Dead Meadow are slated to kick things off.
