The Pretty Reckless, The Culture Room, April 23, $20.65
Taylor Momsen and Co. serve up heaps of teen angst and raccoon eyes, and, even if that isn't your aesthetic, we've got to admit: Girl certainly knows how to rock. Little Jenny Humphries is all grown up, and The Pretty Reckless' appearance at festivals like Warped Tour and Lollapalooza has given the band the chops it needs to make it big. Come early for a meet and greet.
Tuesday, April 23, 7:30 p.m., The Culture Room, 3045 North Federal Highway, Ft. Lauderdale.
Nite Jewel, Bardot, April 26, $10
Nite Jewel, a.k.a. Ramona Gonzalez, own brand of synth-y, L.A.-infused pop has swept the indie dance scene by storm, playing a bajillion shows at SXSW and touring with fellow buzzband Chairlift. Not only do we love Ramona's style, but her matter-of-fact personality charms us, too.
Thursday, April 26, 9 p.m., Bardot, 3456 North Miami Avenue.
Pete Rock, Bardot, April 27, $16
Pete Rock is one of the progenitors of cool, conscious hip-hop, and to see him in a place the size of Bardot is really, no-bones-about-it exciting. It's a rare treat to see a living legend, and we're just as amped to see his newer stuff as we are to witness his beloved classics.
Friday, April 27, 9 p.m., Bardot, 3456 North Miami Avenue.
