Canadian rockers The Tragically Hip perform their last show of the week at the Troubadour in West Hollywood and nearby at the Key Club, Brooklyn based Balkan Beat Box headlines featuring their amalgam of glorious Sephardic, dub and electronica sounds. But our pick of the night is Afro Funke, which is not a band, but rather a club night at Zanzibar in Santa Monica. It's the weekly world/salsa/Brazilian/positive music event's 6th anniversary and one LAist gives a high recommendation for, whether you go tonight or any other Thursday (read our write up of the event from last year). Tonight's acts include Kon & Amir, DJ Day, Jeremy Ellis, Balandugu Kan, KCRW's Jeremy Sole and DJ Glenn Red.

Complete listings for tonight are after the jump.
