April is finally here and there’s plenty of music to get you going this week. Sunday is a bit slower for obvious reasons but, the rest weekend is loaded with great music all around. You can help us all keep doing what we’re doing by supporting the venues that provide us with live music every week and, of course, supporting the artists.
