The Sweetlife Food and Music Festival kicks off the season of big, outdoor concerts as it welcomes Avicii, the Shins, Kid Cudi and many more to Merriweather Post Pavilion. A pair of New York acts — indie-pop songstress Frankie Rose and invigorating electro-pop duo Tanlines — hit town supporting new albums that could find their way onto many year-end top 10 lists. Van Dyke Parks and Iceland’s Of Monsters and Men play free shows. Daryl Hall and Sharon Jones co-headline a soulful bill at Warner Theatre. And Death Cab for Cutie goes orchestral at Strathmore.
Check out the full list of D.C.’s best concerts in April.
