SANTA MONICA—If anyone knows how to throw a killer, cool party, it's mega LA brand Nasty Gal (1254 3rd Street Promenade). Tonight from 7-9pm, stop by the store to catch the release of the new album from LA-based sister duo band Bleached, whose sound seems perfectly in keeping with the Nasty Gal aesthetic. While you're listening to the new tracks and drinking beer, definitely shop for festival-ready looks and enter for a chance to win a $500 shopping spree. That would seriously help with your Coachella wardrobe budget.
