Two of Los Angeles' finest musical acts headline at Los Angeles' finest venue, the Echoplex, tonight (June 8).

HEALTH spent the better part of the past year or two opening for Nine Inch Nails, collaborating with Crystal Castles, and touring with Dan Deacon, among many other things. Their second album of remixes, DISCO2, hits stores June 22. If Best Coast captures the sound of fun Los Angeles days, then HEALTH definitely is the soundtrack of the dark alleyways you don't want to get stuck in if you've wandered too far from Echo Park.

Check out their NSFW video for one of their more melodic and seemingly hip hop backing track-inspired song "USA Boys":

Best Coast, lead by frontwoman Bethany Cosentino, has their debut full length album, Crazy For You, dropping on July 27. Best Coast is today's premiere lo-fi indie band, highlighted by Cosentino's majestically fuzzed-out vocals and 60's girl group throwback melodies, all sounding like Phil Spector managed to secretly record her from jail. The songs perfectly capture the mood of hot and lazy Los Angeles weekend afternoon trips from downtown to the beach.

Here's the video of Best Coast's "When I'm With You", which is also a loving tribute to not only Los Angeles, but also one of Los Angeles' finest eating institutions:

Indian Jewelry and Gold Panda round out the solid lineup.

Tickets are $14.
