April showers bring May flowers, but this first week of April brings us a storm of wet hot shows not to miss! This week plays host to some sure to be ragers all across the country. Everyone is ready to get nasty after a long winter of hibernation, so get those rain boots out and prepare to get wet. Take a look at what’s coming up this week.

The Jamwich is coming off a celebratory weekend and we would like to thank everyone for coming out to our 5th b-day party last weekend at the 8X10! The festivities were lit thanks to Litz and Papadosio. Mike Healy even stopped by after his fantastic set at Light City Baltimore to jump on the bongos to back up LITZ. We hope to see you all this Saturday in Wilkes Barre to catch Kung Fu at the River St. Jazz Café.

Getting antsy to catch some fresh Phish this summer? The Opera House is hosting Jazz is Phish this Sunday April 9th. Remember: Never miss a Sunday show! Twiddle is making a stop by the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland this Sunday as well. This show is sure to be one groovy time for only $15 at the door, mahalo boys. The second annual Euphoria Festival will be commandeering the city of Austin, Texas. Catch the legendary lineup of producers and Jamtronica, including the boys of Papadosio, all weekend for under$200!

Party in the desert this Saturday and Sunday at Phoenix Lights! The crunchy lineup includes dozens of top of the line electronic icons sure to please any connoisseur of the jams. The weekend will include sets by Cashmere Cat, Griz, Tiesto, Zeds Dead, and Sound Tribe Sector 9. Catch the Tribe before they make their way to show some love on the east coast. Tickets are still available.
