First, catch feature stars the Silversun Pickups at Vintage Vinyl at 5:30 p.m. next Wednesday, April 4. The LA quartet will be performing an in-store, its only free show in town and only chance to catch them if you don't have tickets to its sold-out Pageant show with Snow Patrol.
Also head to Vintage Vinyl on Sunday, April 1, where country legend Charlie Louvin -- who we previewed in B-Sides -- will be performing at 4 p.m., his only St. Louis appearance. Fellow B-Side star Patty Griffin is at the Pageant on Friday, March 30.
More shows after the jump...
Saturday at the Billiken Club, catch Youth Group, who will be playing with St. Louis favorites Aqueduct. The latter's new Barsuk album, Or Give Me Death, is full of sublime, '70s-inspired soft-synth-rock. Highlight: "Broken Records."
The Haunted is at Pop's on Tuesday night alongside Dark Tranquility and Into Eternity. And the Hard Lessons are at the Creepy Crawl on Wednesday night -- the day after a set by synthrockers the Static Age and some pretty excellent local bands (including the Bureau debuting its new lineup and a group it was suggested I check out, Caporetto).
