Nico Vega, Soko, LA Ladies Choir at Echoplex Haiti benefit tonight

January 22, 2010 | 12:51 pm

Nico For anyone who wants to meld show-going and Haiti fundraising but can't swing the few hundred bucks in couch change it'll take to get into Radiohead at the Fonda on Sunday, the Echoplex and Manimal Vinyl are hosting a smaller but equally worthy benefit tonight.

Slinky noir-rockers Nico Vega, the gamine French siren Soko and the sprawling a capella ensemble LA Ladies Choir (which counts the vocalists of practically every female-fronted indie band in town among its members) will headline starting at 7 p.m., with a raffle hawking prizes like dinner for two at Elf in Echo Park, collectibles from Yoko Ono and more.

Admission is a $10 donation, and all proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders.
