Michael Deeds recommends

Jimmy Webb: April 6, Sapphire Room. Singer-pianist and “MacArthur Park” songwriter is an entertaining, charismatic storyteller.

Killswitch Engage: April 6, Knitting Factory. Veteran metalcore band always strives to keep headbanging fun.

Metalachi: April 7, Neurolux. “The world’s first and only heavy metal mariachi band.” Yes, please!
