Red Bull Sound Select's next show features a great trio of SoCal artists at the Echo March 25, curated by our friends at Filter. Pick up early tickets for the show here for $3.

Headlining the bill is L.A.'s PAPA. The band has steadily grown over the past few years from local indie pop darlings to a sexy, grooving beast. Last year's Tender Madness was an excellent entry into the city's cache of guitar-based bands that put danceable beats on equal footing with interesting musicianship and unique melodies. Check out "Young Rut" for a taste of how enjoyable their music can be.

Cillie Barnes is an indie pop singer-songwriter with a great, earthy voice and an ear for intriguing sounds. "Brainwash," taken from last year's Happy Valley EP, moves on bouncey piano and acoustic guitar, unloading a catchy refrain as Barnes whispers, hoops and hollers through the proceedings. It'll have you singing along in no time.

Huntington Beach's Hindu Pirates produce shoegazey sounds, billowing out swirling guitars, new wave beats and shadowy melodies in the vein of bands like The Stone Roses. For anyone like us who can't get enough great post-punk bands in their lives, Hindu Pirates are a godsend. Check out "Like I'm Sinkin'" and you'll be hooked.
