This weekend in L.A.: Watson Twins, Helen Stellar, Ariel Pink, Red Cortez, Gangi, French Miami, more


[Happy birthday to ex-Drop Nineteens frontwoman, former Beantowner and current L.A. songstress Paula Kelley … Now, on to the weekend’s festivities:]

Check out LA Weekly’s West Coast Sound for my roundup of weekend outings. Here’s a handful of my favorites in a jam-packed weekend:

The Watson Twins, back from 15 dates last month supporting their new album “Talking to You, Talking to Me,” play the Bootleg Theater. That’s their video for “Savin’ You,” above.
Helen Stellar does Club Underground at the Echo tonight.
Gangi opens for the Clientele at the Echoplex on Saturday.
Red Cortez opens for Alberta Cross and Dead Confederate on Saturday at the Troubadour.
Queen Caveat rocks Spaceland on Saturday.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti takes it to the Glass House on Saturday.
‣ And at Spaceland on Sunday, it’s a quartet of newbies all worth checking out – French Miami, Alpine Decline, LA Font and Lesands.
