Bloc Party

Our Pick: Bloc Party, Menomena @ Hollywood Palladium $22.50

Tonight Denver-bred Grammy Award-winning neo soul singer India.Arie will be taking on Club Nokia in Downtown. "The Boss" is poised to headline the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Brooklyn-based dance punk duo Matt & Kim will be rocking the Santa Monica Pier for free. And, lastly, local chanteuse Nicole Simone will be gracing Home Restaurant in Silver Lake. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Hollywood Palladium to catch English indie rockers Bloc Party (LAist Review). LAist favorites, Portland's own experimental rock outfit Menomena (LAist Review) are slated to kick things off.
