Live Music Calendar – April 4-10

@ One Eyed Jack's this Thursday

For the first full week of April — A monster week of shows in town from Monday to Sunday no matter what you dig. Harry Connick Jr. on Monday, dueling dance/freak shows with Scissor Sisters and Lady Gaga both passing through, Band of Horses packing it in on a Wednesday at Tip’s and of course, the annual firing up on Thursday and engulfing the city for four days. Finally, fans of the recent 80s New Wave renaissance in the world of indie rock should absolutely not miss the Twin Shadow performance at One Eyed Jack’s, should be a doozy.
