This week Bristol-based electronic duo Massive Attack will be taking on a three-night stint at the Wiltern. Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cincinnati indie rock act the National are poised to headline the Wiltern two consecutive nights in a row later on in the week. Swedish indie rockers Shout Out Louds will be gracing the El Rey Theatre twice. And, lastly, Canadian psych pop maestro Dan Snaith, otherwise known as Caribou, will be performing at the El Rey Theatre with none other than South Carolina-bred experimental electro pop maestro Chaz Budnick, who performs under the moniker Toro Y Moi in tow.

Caribou - "Selfish Boy"

Massive Attack - "Splitting The Atom"
