The great Baltimore band Wye Oak continues to grow their audience in the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, May 6th and be sure to get there early for Braids.
Blackberry Smoke wafts over to the Fillmore on Friday, May 9th.
Kaki King is one of the most vibrant and original acoustic guitarists you will ever see. She plays the Artisphere on Saturday, May 10th.
Jenny Hval hails from Norway and she is worth seeing all by herself at the Black Cat on Wednesday May 14th. But stick around for this other band called the Swans.
And if you can't make it to that fabulous show, you can head to the Rock'n'Roll Hotel for a great up and coming band called Eagulls, alas, also on Wednesday the 14th.
