    Good choices! Check out The Preatures, Temples, Lake Street Dive, James Bay, and Robert Ellis. All quality stuff.

    Re: Upcoming Shows

    Those shows - at least the Austin one - were originally scheduled for next week; the fact that they were all moved to the end of April = Coachella confirmed.

    Please no. He was one of the worst headliners I've ever seen at ACL in 2012. He spent half his set time talking politics.
