So it seems that the weather is finally seasonally appropriate for the first time in 2012, but don't let the April showers keep you inside this weekend or else you're going to miss out on some great live music. We've got three local album release shows this weekend -- hip-hoppers Hawthorne Headhunters on Friday, the folksy soul of Rough Shop on Saturday and Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost on Sunday. Worth mentioning as well is Cavo's album release at Cicero's on Sunday, but it is not listed below because one must luck out and Willy-Wonka oneself in order to even gain admission.
