Michael Deeds recommends

Ben Kronberg: April 15-17, Liquid Laughs. One-liner-loving comedian irritated judge Roseanne Barr on “Last Comic Standing.”

Mount Moriah: April 21, Neurolux. Female-fronted North Carolina trio blends Southern rock, country, roots, punk.

The Story So Far: April 21, Knitting Factory. Sometimes a high-energy pop-punk concert is the answer.
