A benefit concert is being held in Brooklyn tonight in honor of three musicians who were shot and killed inside their apartment last week.

Two members of Iranian punk band The Yellow Dogs and musician Ali Eskandarian will be remembered at a concert at the Brooklyn Bowl.

The doors open at 6 p.m. for a lineup featuring performances from Nada Surf, Kyp Malone of the band TV on the Radio and DJ Nick Offer.

All proceeds go towards the families of the deceased.

Brothers Arash and Soroush Farazmand and their roommate, Eskandarian, were killed last Monday when police say their former associate, Ali Akbar Mohammadi Rafie, broke into their Williamsburg apartment and shot them with an assault rifle.

Rafie then turned the gun on himself, according to police.

The Yellow Dogs had recently settled in Brooklyn after fleeing Tehran.
