Weekend Checklist: Guster, Caroline Smith, First Aid Kit, Ferry Corsten

With the change in weather, there is a need to shake off the winter blues and socialize more. Headlining the Dakota fresh off their tour is Davina and the Vagabonds, while Guster share the stage at The Pantages with comedian Jeff Garlin. If you don't have tickets to the First Aid Kit at the Cedar Cultural Center, Caroline Smith brings her band The Good Night Sleeps and her heartbreaking voice to the Mainroom on Saturday. Easter can be for adults too with a bar hop going on in Northeast.
