Our Pick: Yelle, Passion Pit, Funeral Party @ The Henry Fonda Music Box

We're pooped from yesterday's festivities, but there are far too many shows to stay in tonight. Portland-based alt-country duo She & Him, or rather Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, will be performing at the Wiltern with LA's own Lavender Diamond. Local pop rockers the Parson Red Heads will be gracing Spaceland with the Spires. And rock trio the 88 will be ringing in their new album, Not only...But also, with Dhani Harrison's thenewno2 at the Troubadour. And, lastly, Hella front man Zach Hill will be performing 2008's Necromancer in its entirety at the Smell in Downtown. But we recommend heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch Boston-based electro-pop sensation Passion Pit. We saw a whole lot of them at 2008's CMJ Festival and they did not disappoint.
