Our Pick: Stereolab, Monade, Richard Swift @ The Henry Fonda Music Box

Tonight Thes One and Double K, the self-proclaimed B-boys of People Under The Stairs, will be playing a short and early set at Amoeba Records in support of their forthcoming 2008 LP, Fun DMC. And, lastly, NY-based folk songstress Dar Williams will be performing at the El Rey with her latest effort, Promised Land, in tow. But we strongly suggest that you head over to the Henry Fonda Music Box. Perennial post-rockers Stereolab will be accompanied by lo-fi champion Richard Swift. Both artists will be performing new material from their latest albums—Chemical Chords and Richard Swift as Onasis respectively.
