Lil Jon performs Friday, April 22nd at The Showplace Theater

Whaaaat!? Okayyyyyyyy!!!!

You know it’s a good month in live music when the King of Crunk himself, Lil Jon, is performing live. That’s right Lil Jon will be performing a one-night-only DJ set at The Showplace Theater on April 22nd. 

But there’s a lot more great entertainment packed into April as well. Local hardcore punk band Tension is celebrating 40 years (40 years!) with a show at Mohawk Place on April 1st. Speaking of local heroes, Joywave are coming to Town Ballroom on April 3rd. Let’s be blunt: English metal band The Darkness do have a kushy job, but they have set high expectations by rolling up to Town Ballroom on April 20th.

As always, this is not a comprehensive list. These shows may or may not be sold out (canceled) as you read these words. Please be sure to follow all venue guidelines regarding proof of vaccination, COVID testing, masks, etc. Now get out there and enjoy some live music!!

Did one of these events get canceled, rescheduled, or postponed? Send us a note!
