Above: That’s the video for “Papaoutai” by French-Belgian rapper, singer and electronic artist Stromae. Having wowed everyone at SXSW this year and now Coachella’ first weekend, he teams up with fellow French artist Yelle for a show at Club Nokia on Tuesday. Stromae also returns to Coachella on Sunday in support of his latest album “Racine Carrée.”

Our staff picks of the week:

@KRBronson recommends: Luna play their first show in 10 years tonight at the Echo; it’s sold out, but maybe you’re resourceful? Plus, this week is chock full of “Localchella” shows. Among the Coachella artists doing club dates: Royal Blood tonight at the Fonda; Jenny Lewis (with Cillie Barnes) on Tuesday at Pappy & Harriet’s; Ride on Tuesday at the Fox Theater Pomona; Action Bronson on Wednesday at the Belasco; and Interpol on Thursday at the Shrine.

@Seraphina_L recommends: Although Fleetwood Mac already played the Forum last week, Coachella goers who were already at the festival on Friday have one more chance to see the rock band when they return to the Inglewood venue on Tuesday.
