Hickey Fest @ Leggett, CA
A fantastic bang for your buck as far as festivals go, $140 or less gets you an avalanche of mostly-local talent and some gorgeous scenery to boot.

Fantastic Negrito @ The Fillmore
If you weren’t lucky enough to catch him in London like our photographer Robert, you can catch Fantastic Negrito closer to home at the Fillmore. This show celebrates the release of his new record, Please Don’t Be Dead.

Nicole Atkins, Marty O’Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra @ The Ritz
It’ll be a rootsy-good time in San Jose with locals Marty O’Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra, and especially with Nicole Atkins, whose 2017 album received an enthusiastic shout from oneof our editors late last year.

Smokin’ Ziggurats, Kokomo Hum @ Bottom of the Hill
I mean, they make a strong case.

Treepeople @ Slim’s
The Boise-born punks reuinte for a handful of shows across the US, stopping at Slim’s tonight.

Tim Atlas, Madi Sipes and the Painted Blue, Byzantine Talk @ Bottom of the Hill
