Weekend Checklist: Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, Counting Crows, A. Wolf and Her Claws, Record Store Day

For those not attending Midwest Music Fest in Winona, this weekend will be a flurry of CD releases mixed into Record Store Day.

Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles headline First Ave. to share some new music and A. Wolf and Her Claws release their long-awaited debut. Counting Crows will be in town for Record Store Day, but if you don't have tickets to the sold-out show, make sure to head over to Hymie's for some local music.
