Neko Case

Fitzgerald Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 25

For Record Store Day last weekend, singer-songwriter Neko Case reissued her 2006 album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood.

Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>

Acadia Cafe : 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.

The Corner Bar : 10:00 p.m. every Fri.
