This week Seattle-based indie rock progenitors Sunny Day Real Estate will be making their triumphant return to the Henry Fonda Music Box with local indie rockers the Jealous Sound in tow. Legendary Austin-based art rock sextet ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are poised to take on the Henry Fonda Music Box. One half of acclaimed electro pop duo the Knife, Swedish experimental electro outfit Fever Ray will also be performing at the Henry Fonda Music Box with none other than Pasadena-bred electronic mastermind Nosaj Thing. And, lastly, LAist's favorite English electro-pop outfit Metronomy (LAist Review) will be headlining the Roxy with local afro-centric indie pop act Fool's Gold.
