It’s only Wednesday, and my mind is already blown by the number of options music fans have for a great live concert experience in LA this weekend. I’ll get into more details on several of those tomorrow in our Weekend Jumpstart, but for now, I just wanted to bring one event in particular to the attention of our readers: Charli XCX with Kitten at The Troubadour Friday night.

I’ve talked about Kiten on the site before, and we’ve even had a chance to chat with frontwoman Chloe Chaidez, but Charli XCX was new to me prior to this week. Not sure how I’ve missed her as the young Brit supported the last Santigold tour in the US, had dates with Coldplay earlier this month, and will be opening for fun. during the second of their three shows at the Wiltern this weekend. Not exactly flying under the radar with acts like those, but this Friday the tiny dance sensation is the main attraction, and if you like your electro-pop stars wearing more black than neon, she’s someone you need to check out.

Watch Charli XCX’s video for “You’re the One” below, and if you like what you hear, be sure to pick up tickets for her show with Kitten at the Troubadour this Friday night.
