Tue. April 7 | The Canadian indie pop band may feel light years away from the buzz it garnered with early release Heart and follow up Set Yourself on Fire, but the fire's still going and it released No One is Lost in October 2014. At 9 p.m. at Republic.

Naughty Professor album release
Fri. April 10 | The jazz-influenced instrumental sextet's latest release is Out on a Limb (Ropeadope Records), which swings from multi-layered brass to ecstatic, driving funk. The album was produced by Grammy Award winner Chris Finney, who has manned the boards for Dr. John, Gov't Mule, Rebirth Brass Band and many others. At 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Dick Dale
Sun. April 12 | Dick Dale's trembling Fender Stratocaster is the sound of every landlubber who's ever tried standing on a surfboard; his Del-Tones' roiling fills the sound of anyone who's ever sustained it. Turning 78 in May, The King of the Surf Guitar is still riding high. At 9 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.

American Aquarium
Mon. April 13 | Named after a Wilco lyric, this Raleigh, North Carolina, band hews closer to the wider-brim stylings of Jeff Tweedy's original outfit, Uncle Tupelo. Its fifth LP, 2012's Burn. Flicker. Die., was produced by Jason Isbell; a self-released sixth, Wolves, arrived in February. The Eastwood Smokes open at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
