Grab your picnic basket...and a flask.

More details to come, but our hearts are warmed and our bodies reinvigorated. Let’s celebrate at these no-duh shows:

This Week In Live Music: Theophilus London, Lucinda Williams, and More

Noise Pop 2015 has wrapped and you’re exhausted and broke and nearly deaf, but you should consider pushing your luck with these irresistible shows...
