Our Pick: Miike Snow, Mark Ronson & The Business Intl, MNDR @ Club Nokia
Tonight Grammy-nominated British singer-songwriter, rapper and record producer M.I.A. will be gracing the Mayan Theater with none other than Rye Rye in tow. San Franciscan indie pop outfit the Morning Benders (LAist Review, #2, #3) are poised to take on the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater with Long Island's own indie pop quintet Twin Sister and NY-based retro 60s opp duo Cults. And, lastly, LA-by-way-of-Wisconsin goth-infused electro act Zola Jesus will be gracing the Echo in anticipation of the release of their third EP, 2010's Valusia. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into Club Nokia in Downtown to catch Swedish electro pop outfit Miike Snow. LAist favorites, Mark Ronson & the Business Intl and Brooklyn-based electro pop songstress Amanda Warner, who performs under the pseudonym MNDR are slated to kick things off.
