Durham's finest indie pop duo play a free early evening show.

A fine way to start another week, don't you think?

This blob sure does.

2. Cold War Kids play The Grammy Museum on Monday, April 24th

Chamber indie pop straight outta Brooklyn.

Come for the theory. Stay for the beats.

If you manage to get tickets to either of these two Magnetic Fields shows (the band's first LA dates in like five years!) you'll be the luckiest guy on the Lower East Side...if that's where you lived.

Stephin Merritt and crew forever!

Pile is the band behind the band behind the band.

RIYL: the punk rock

9. The Wedding Present play The Echo on Saturday, April 29th (tickets)

One of my favorite bands ever, man.

If you somehow missed out on this British band's hard jingle jangle pop goodness that's OK shit happens.

Start with either this album or this album. I love them like they were my own records.


10. The Weeknd plays The Forum on Saturday, April 29th and Sunday, April 30th

Ths two Weeknd shows at Th Forum should b prtty good ons.
