April 6 -- Fujiya & Miyagi at Union Nightclub

Formed by guitarist David Best and synth player Steve Lewis, Fujiya & Miyagi are deeply indebted both to vintage '70s Krautrock and the '90s bands that were themselves influenced by the likes of Neu! and Kraftwerk, from Stereolab and Broadcast to Aphex Twin and the Orb.

of rock 'n' roll energy and showmanship that fueled THE MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, they're also heavily influenced by artists like JAMES BROWN, IGGY POP, JIMI HENDRIX, LITTLE RICHARD, and THE SONICS.

April 7 -- From the Buena Vista Social Club™ Omara Portuondo at The Regent Theater

“With our music we Cubans have exported more dreams and pleasures than with our tobacco, more sweetness and energy than with all our sugar. Afro-Cuban music is fire, savour and smoke; it is syrup, charm and relief. It is like sonorous rum, which brings people together and makes them treat each other as equals. It brings the senses to dynamic life.”endured. Bartolo was a friend of the national poet Nicolás Guillén and a lover of music and the house, lacking a gramophone, was filled with singing.

April 8 -- SadGirl with Peach Kelli Pop at Teragram Ballroom

Take a shot of surf and garnish it with gangster oldies and tears. You'll have yourself a SadGirl cocktail—tiki umbrella and tear drop tattoo not included. SadGirl is Misha Lindes (guitar/vocals), Paul Caruso (drums) and Dakota Peterson (bass). The lo-fi surf-wop band is one of the newer LA groups making waves these days (pun intended).
