This week NY-bred indie pop outfit Vampire Weekend (LAist Review, #2, #3, #4) will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the Henry Fonda Music Box. LA-bred singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop will not only be gracing the Hotel Café once, but twice. Portland's own folk rockers the Builders and the Butchers (LAist Interview) will be taking on Spaceland. And, lastly, local electro pop singer-songwriter Evan Voytas is poised to perform at the Echo for this week's edition of Club Underground.
