Ed Kowalczyk has released three solo albums since the breakup with his former Live bandmates. Now, he’s revisiting his success with stripped-down versions of hits such as “Lightning Crashes” and “I Alone.” He brings Throwing Copper Unplugged to Vinyl on April 2 ($40-$60).
LESS CHAT, MORE RATATAT
Mike Stroud and Evan Mast have been issuing records as Ratatat for more than a decade, so if you somehow don’t know their experimental, instrumental rock, you must watch them play the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool on April 8 ($28).
ON SALE NOW
Dick Dale, the “King of the Surf Guitar,” doesn’t believe in playlists. At his age, having battled cancer and diabetes, he can play whatever he wants. When he launches into “Misirlou” or his cover of “Ring of Fire,” you’re going to want to be at the Hard Rock Live on June 3 ($25).
