Big night in Hollywood, starting with the Pablove Foundation Benefit Concert at the new Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood. Eulogies, the One Am Radio and Sara Lov perform (and Silversun Pickups and Jimmy Tamborello DJ) at the event benefiting the Children’s Hospital charity named for cancer-stricken 5-year-old Pablo Castelaz, son of Dangerbird Records honcho Jeff Castelaz. (The 2-disc benefit album “Give Listen Help” is available at the Urban Outfitters there, too). … Across Cahuenga, the terrific trio of Gary Jules, Jim Bianco and Ian Ball are lined up to play the Hotel Cafe. … And not far away, the Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer goes it solo at the Music Box at Fonda, while Mercury Rev [pictured] plays the El Rey Theatre. They’re also appearing on KCRW-FM at 11:15 this morning. … At Spaceland, Karin Tatoyan performs her mystical avant-pop on a bill including War Tapes and Seasons. … And it’s Flyleaf pals Resident Hero at the Troubadour; Black Apples at the Silverlake Lounge; and Native Fauna at the Echo.
