Tonight in L.A. (October 25, 2012)

The spooks of Halloween are basically upon us with a handful of events tonight to get your costumes dirty and your feet moving.  

The weekly VS Party at The Central SAPC isn't a bad start - near lingerie like clothing is par for the course when it comes to attire, so a Halloween flavored dance party might step the naughty up a notch on the westside.   Neither is the Billboard Conference wrap party hosted by Hunnypot at Vanguard - there will be music in two rooms, including the verbal venom of Nina Dioz, catchy indie rock of Das Tapes and more.  Both events are technically free - although VS turns to paid entrance after 11.

If you're looking for headliners - look no further than Live Nation venues tonight.  Matt & Kim make sounds bigger than their 2 person show at The Wiltern with support from Oberhofer.  Over at Hollywood Palladium - Two Door Cinema Club gets into business with support from Friends and St. Lucia.  We are proudly giving away tickets to both shows so email us at if you want in on the action or alternatively tweet out @supergoodmusic @livenationLA and either @thepalladium or @wiltern.  

On the east side I like what Echo is putting down - upstairs the indie vibes of White Arrows, Kitten and Blondfire might capture your attention, but personally I'm drawn to the show downstairs at Echoplex with Goldroom as headliner.  Rather than attempt to describe their eclectic sound - Goldroom is done justice by watching their video:

Other notable shows featuring up and comers include Bixel Boys at The Mint, TS & The Past Haunts at El Cid , Tropicool at Detroit Bar and Oona at Harvard & Stone.
