Our Pick: The New Pornographers, The Dodos, Imaad Wasif @ The Music Box at Henry Fonda

Tonight Kele, former front man of English indie rock act Bloc Party (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4), will be gracing Cinespace in anticipation of his forthcoming heavily electronic solo venture—2010's The Boxer. (Canceled!) Raleigh-by-way-of-Netherlands Grammy-nominated hip hop duo the Foreign Exchange are poised to headline the Roxy in Hollyweird. And, lastly, local indie rockers One Trick Pony will be performing at Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Music Box at Henry Fonda to catch prolific Canadian indie rockers the New Pornographers, who will be concluding their two-night stint. LAist favorites, San Francisco-based psych-folk-pop act the Dodos are slated to kick things off.
