Our Pick: Ratatat, Dom, Bobby Birdman @ Club Nokia

Tonight Kele, former front man of English indie rock act Bloc Party (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4), will be gracing the Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater. Danish indie rockers Efterklang are poised to headline the Troubadour. And, lastly, Local indie pop outfit the Parson Red Heads (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) will be taking on Spaceland with none other than local indie rockers Red Cortez (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) and fellow Los Angelenos the World Record. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into Club Nokia to catch Brooklyn-based electronic maestros Ratatat, who are currently touring in support of their fourth studio album—2010's LP4. LAist favorites, local electro pop mastermind Bobby Birdman is poised to kick things off.

Have no fear! Week In Rock will be posted later today!
