Here are some shows guaranteed to make your week a little better.
Monday, April 14
China Forbes (Pink Martini), Bowery Ballroom, New York
Pink Martini is a jazzy band. I don’t listen to them much, but I’ve heard that China Forbes puts on a good solo show.
Tuesday, April 15
The Gossip, Webster Hall, New York
Beth Ditto totally brings down the house live. The Gossip is a totally amazing rock band.
Rogue Wave, First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia
I didn’t like their latest album as much, but Rogue Wave is a pretty great pop band. They’re also really good live.
Wednesday, April 16
Colin Meloy, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn
If you like the Decemberist’s Balkan-pirate-orchestral rock, that means you like their lead singer, Colin Meloy.
Wu Tang Clan, Irving Plaza, New York
Just because this show has the potential to be totally mind-blowing in either a great or a terrible way.
