Tuesday, April 1

Saintseneca

Amoeba Music Hollywood
"Stompy folk songs" is what Pitchfork calls the music of Saintseneca, which blends clean, quiet acoustic instrumentation (of guitars, of course, but also violin, dulcimer, and something called a Turkish baglama) with reverb-soaked electric guitars, and even synthesizers. For a band that grew up on farms in Appalachia, they've got an edge to their pastoral sound. The 6 pm show celebrates the release of their new album, Dark Arc, out today on ANTI-. 


Thursday, April 3
Ziggy Marley

Sonos Studio


Reggae legend Ziggy Marley will be on hand for a Q&A, stories, and a live performance featuring songs from his upcoming album

Fly Rasta

, out April 15. 

RSVP

 required, 21+.

Thursday, April 3
The Down & Out
East LA's Los Creepers have been bringing punk rock to safety-pin pierced ears since '96. Having played with Rancid, Social Distortion, The Straycats, and NOFX (just to name a few) these guys know how to hang and mosh, with the best of 'em. Catch their residency every Thursday in April, 21+.

Saturday, April 12
Svetlana Smolina
First Lutheran Church & School
Svetlana Smolina is one of the world's most acclaimed concert pianists, having performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic, the Hollywood Bowl Festival, the Tribeca Film Festival, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, not to mention countless solo and orchestral performances outside the U.S. It's rare to see the Russian star not performing for an audience of thousands, so this intimate recital should not be missed.

Saturday, April 19
Ravi Coltrane
CalArts, The Wild Beast
The son of the late renowned saxophonist John Coltrane, Ravi Coltrane has some big shoes to fill. After playing saxophone with artists like Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, and Flying Lotus (his cousin), being sent to India to perform in a State Department HIV/AIDS awareness concert, performing in festivals all around the world, and founding prominent jazz label RKM Music, it's safe to say he's done a pretty good job of that. Catch Coltrane along with Ralph Alessi, Peter Epstein, James Carney and Darek Oles for a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the CalArts jazz program.
