Black Kids

Our Pick: Black Kids, Mates of State @ Henry Fonda Music Box

Tonight British reggae outfit UB40 (LAist Interview) will be headlining the House of Blues Sunset. English soul and R&B singer Joss Stone is poised to grace Club Nokia. And, lastly, Australian singer-songwriter Lenka (LAist Review, #2) will be performing at Largo at the Coronet with Greg Laswell (LAist Interview, Review, #2, #3, #4, #5). But we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch Jacksonville-based indie rockers Black Kids. Kansas-bred indie pop duo Mates of States are poised to kick things off.
