Happening Monday: Little Dragon, Adele and more
Adele “I’ll Be Waiting” is a neo-soul sashay, and it inspires the singer to push her vocal expressions into sweet howls reminiscent of those by Dusty Springfield, another Brit deeply influenced by American country and soul. Overall, her album “21" shows that Adele, now 23, is towering in the same landscape where some of her contemporaries, beehived or not, have lost all their bearings. Greek Theatre, 2700 N. Vermont Ave., L.A. 7:30 p.m. $32.50-$65. Greektheatrela.com. Also at the Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Wed. $34. livenation.com.
For the Record: The version of this story that appeared in print on Monday listed the Jane Fonda event at Vroman’s as happening on Wednesday. It is in fact happening on Tuesday.
Little Dragon Hot on the heels of the release of its third album, “Ritual Union,” the Swedish electro synth-pop four-piece hits the Southland with a brand new set of songs. The band got its name from Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nago’s fuming studio tantrums, but Little Dragon’s atmospheric down tempo music soothes rather than savages. The Roxy, 9009 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. 8 p.m. $20. (310) 278-9457. theroxyonsunset.com.
Point of View: Women Behind the Camera Three female filmmakers — Lesley Chilcott, Michèle Ohayon and Lauren Greenfield — will discuss the challenges and rewards women face in producing and directing documentary films.

Jane Fonda Not only are there second acts in America, but the actress, now 73, contends there’s a third, and possibly best, act that’s been underrated for far too long. The Oscar and Emmy winner and former guru of the fitness industry has written the bestselling memoir “My Life So Far” and now “Prime Time,” a primer on how growing older means getting only better. Barnes & Noble at the Grove, 189 The Grove Drive. 7 p.m. Monday. (323) 525-0270. Also, Vroman’s Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena. 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. (626) 449-5320.
