Do It. Friday concert round-up.

Need some music for your Friday night? We've got a round-up of a few notables, and while these shows might be 'sold-out,' we know you BEATs can work some magic. What's the point of living in L.A. if you can do a little persuading (or a little party-crashing), right?

- First Fridays at the Natural History Museum: although the new (lame) ticketing system for this formerly first-come-first-serve event means this show has been sold out for weeks, this month's edition probably won't bring the crazy, hip-obsessed crowds it did for last month's Yeasayer and Warpaint duo. Deertick and Everest will still be fun though, and hey, you can still find out "Do Flies Have Feelings?"
5:30pm at the Natural History Museum, 900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles

- Bird and the Bee at the El Rey: a show with this indie twosome is already incentive enough to head out to Miracle Mile, but they've got something extra special planned for tonight. This will be the only show where they'll be performing from their latest album, "Interpreting the Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates," set to be released on the 23rd. Pop heaven. Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt show up for a dance number? We hope so. In any case, you can even keep tabs on the show from home, thanks to Livestream.
8pm at the El Rey, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., Miracle Mile

- Appleseed Cast at the Echoplex: this one's another special exclusive: the post rockers will be playing their critically-acclaimed and beloved monster of an album, Low Level Owl I & II in its entirety tonight at the Echoplex. That's, uh, 50 songs for you, and at least a solid two hours of pure sprawling, atmospheric. At $15, it's certainly your money's worth to witness live the heart behind one of the ambitious and influential post-rock records to date.
8:30pm at the Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Blvd., Echo Park
