Each month, new music comes to the Triangle to spread groovy tunes and musical excitement to all North Carolinians (and others if you're looking to take a road trip). Here's a look into the mix of music coming to a venue near you. 

Imaginary Tricks, The Lonely Biscuits

Local 506 

April 8, Doors: 7 p.m.

$8 advance/$10 day of

Imaginary Tricks and The Lonely Biscuits are coming to Local 506 and both are most likely ready to serve you some alternative indie music that makes you want to sway. 


Yo La Tengo 

Cat's Cradle

April 10, Doors: 7:30 p.m.

$22 advance/$24 day of

Yo La Tengo, which means “I have it” in Spanish, has one of those sounds that you could just curl up with and fall asleep in. Their music makes me feel like everything is calm in the world. This indie rock band’s soft lyrics and vibey keyboard will not only make you want to interpretive dance, but it will also lower your heart rate, which is always a plus. You'll want to be saying, “I have it!” when someone asks you if you have gotten your tickets for the show. 

Dark Star Orchestra

The Ritz Raleigh

April 14, Doors: 7 p.m.


Dark Star Orchestra makes you feel like you’ve jumped into a brightly colored fluorescent music video where everyone is wearing bell-bottom jeans and round wire glasses and having a GREAT time. The song, “Stay Up Late,” presents some interesting guitar riffs, as well as lyrics that really make you want to bounce your shoulders. 

X Ambassadors

The Ritz Raleigh

April 13, Doors: 7 p.m.


Have you ever had one of those days where it’s raining outside, it’s kinda humid and you’re wearing your favorite Converse and then you accidentally step in a HUGE puddle, and your feet are soaked and your avocado socks are wet and everything stinks when suddenly you see a puppy wearing a red raincoat and everything gets infinitely better? No? Yes? Well, while that situation may be oddly specific, X Ambassadors makes you get that feeling of seeing that puppy in a raincoat. It’s a feeling of your heart getting ripped out and then put back together with soft acoustic sounds and raspy voices.
