This Week in Great Music: 3/22 – 3/28

This week is a little low-key.  That’s because every band in the universe is making its way out of Austin after SXSW.  Don’t worry, kids, April and May are exploding with music.

If you’ve got time on Wednesday, go check out JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound at the Tonic Room.  They’re playing a much larger room at SPACE in May, and I can only imagine them getting more and more of an audience as time goes on, so check them out now while they can still fit in the tiny space of the Tonic Room.
