Our Pick: Metronomy, Destructo, Fool's Gold @ The Roxy

Tonight Fran Healy and Andy Dunlop of Scottish alternative rock outfit Travis will be kicking off a sold-out two-night stint at Largo at the Coronet. Montreal-based electro funk duo Chromeo are poised to DJ at Club 740 in anticipation of their latest contribution to the famed DJ Kicks series. And, lastly, Brooklyn-bred Americana act O'Death will be headlining Spaceland with none other than local rock and roll outfit Slang Chickens. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Roxy to catch LAist's favorite English electro pop outfit Metronomy (LAist Review). LA-based afro-centric indie pop act Fool's Gold are slated to kick things off.

You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.
