This week Swedish electro pop outfit Miike Snow will be taking on a sold-out, three-night stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box with none other than LAist favorite, Nashville's Daniel James, better known as Canon Blue. Critically-acclaimed NY-based electro pop outfit LCD Soundsystem are poised to perform to a sold-out crowd once at the Hollywood Palladium, as well as a second time at the Fox Theater Pomona. London-based electro pop maestro Dan Black will be headlining the Roxy in the heart of Hollyweird. And last, but certainly not least, hometown heroes, Silver Lake's own indie rock sensation Local Natives (LAist Interview, Review, #2) will be dipping into Los Angeles for two sold-out dates—one at the Troubadour, and another at the Bootleg Theater—before heading out to conquer the world again. Needless to say, it is completely beyond us how quickly everything changes.

Local Natives - "Wide Eyes"

LCD Soundsystem - "Home"
