April's first Saturday features concerts by a renowned R&B star who's also a local legend (Roberta Flack) and a young DJ (Calvin Harris) who claims to have "created disco." Other highlights this month include Brit-pop groups old (the Wedding Present) and new (Let's Wrestle), hip-hop up-and-comers Kidz in the Hall, genre-blending Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré and tropicalia icon Caetano Veloso. There should be something for everyone.
