Our Pick: Robyn, Kelis, Far East Movement, Dan Black @ The Music Box at Henry Fonda

Tonight San Diegan rockers Delta Spirit (LAist Interview) will be headlining the El Rey Theatre with none other than local folk rockers the Romany Rye in tow. San Francisco-by-way-of-Santa Cruz psych-tinged rock sextet Sleepy Sun are poised to grace Spaceland. And, lastly, New Jersey lo-fi duo Slow Animal will be taking on Echo Curio. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Music Box at Henry Fonda to catch Swedish electro pop chanteuse Robyn, who recently released her fifth studio album—2010's Body Talk Pt. 1. NY-based R&B-turned-electro-pop singer-songwriter Kelis, who has unexpectedly rebounded from her "Milkshake" days by pairing up with some of the most prominent dance/electronic producers of our time, and London-based electro pop maestro Dan Black are poised to perform as well.

Might we also suggest stopping by the Strange on Melrose to catch a glimpse of some prints from the lovely and talented Rachel Carr? Crystal Antlers and Graham Forest playin' too. Whoabro.
