Green Day, Best Coast, & More Awesome Shows This Week

1
Waxahatchee, Certain Spiders, Modern Hut, Radiator Hospital: 285 Kent, April 3, $10
Katie Crutchfield's music as Waxahatchee is a spare, unrestrained, and brutally honest take on folk. With last year's debut American Weekend and her sophomore follow-up Cerulean Salt, Crutchfield has emerged as one of the most exciting new songwriters in years.
Wednesday, April 3, 8 p.m., 285 Kent, 285 Kent Ave (between South 1st and South 2nd streets); Brooklyn; 718-599-1450.
Jessie Ware, MS MR: Music Hall of Williamsburg, April 3, and Webster Hall, April 5, $20
In a double helping of alternative pop awesomeness, British singer Jessie Ware and New York duo MS MR are playing shows this week at the Music Hall of WIlliamsburg and Webster Hall. Ware has already become quite the star for her R&B-inflected grooves, while MS MR is primed for similar success with an upcoming full-lengh and fantastic early singles "Hurricane" and "Bones."
Wednesday, April 3, 8 p.m. Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street (between Kent and Wythe avenues); Brooklyn; 718-486-5400.
Friday, April 5, 6 p.m., Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street (between 3rd and 4th avenues); 212-353-1600.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Webster Hall, April 7, $30
With a new album imminent, New York's own Yeah Yeah Yeahs is playing its first big show in ages to celebrate. For those that have seen Karen O, Brian Chase, and Nick Zinner live, you already know this is a can't-miss type of show. Expect songs from the soon-to-be-released Mosquito, as well as old favorites. Here's hoping for "Art Star."
Sunday, April 7, 8 p.m., Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street (between 3rd and 4th avenues); 212-353-1600.
