Not much happening today in This Week in Indie, but check it out anyway for tomorrow.
The Kings of Leon show at Izod Center tonight was cancelled.
The Radiators play their final NYC show tonight? UPDATE: no, someone told me they will be back in June.
Speaking of the NYPL, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings (who have two public NYC shows coming up) play a private NYPL event at Brooklyn Bowl tonight. You probably can’t get in, but you can go to the afterparty at the same venue.
