This Week in Great Music: 4/5 – 4/11

Let’s hope that this week is better than last, where I had a moment of complete brilliance and proceeded to forget all about the show I was supposed to go to on Saturday night.  Sigh.

I’ll be at Lincoln Hall on Wednesday (Fanfarlo) and Thursday (The xx), provided that I don’t forget about those shows, too.
