This Week in Great Music: 4/4 – 4/10

This week’s got a lot of great shows on the calendar, and I’ll be at a couple of them.  Come find me and say hi at Tuesday’s Mountain Goats show (the Vic), or Friday’s Over the Rhine show (Lincoln Hall).  I’m hoping to make it to Lincoln Hall on Saturday for Sharon Van Etten, but my own band, Jungle of Cities, is doing a show that night at US Beer Company (1801 N Clybourn).  If you’re not enticed by any of the other shows on Saturday night, come out and see us — I think we go on around 10.
