UPDATE:
Shrinebuilder have added a last minute show tonight thanks to the volcano.

More about some of tonight’s shows in This Week in Indie.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion plays Brooklyn Bowl tonight and then the Pitchfork Festival this summer. Last summer they played South Street Seaport.

South Street Seaport just announced some of the bands playing there this summer.

One of the bands playing the Seaport this summer is Golden Triangle who opens for Jon Spencer tonight and has other shows coming up too.

The Banksy documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shopopens this weekend at Sunshine Theater and Lincoln Plaza. As everyone that was clapping at the screening we hosted on Sunday will tell you, it’s a great movie. Mr. Brainwash FTW!

Speaking of movies, I haven’t seen it, but No One Knows About Persian Cats (Kasi az gorbehaye irani khabar nadareh) also opens tonight…

“Recently released from prison, two young musicians decide to form a band. Together they search the underworld of contemporary Tehran for other players. Forbidden by the authorities to play in Iran, they plan to escape from their clandestine existence more », and dream of performing in Europe. But with no money and no passports, it won’t be easy…”

Iranian indie rock bands Hypernova and Yellow Dogs both star in the film and then are playing its opening party at 92YTribeca.

The Iranian event is not part of the Tribeca Film Festival which starts on April 21st.

Aloha have a new album out, and play Knitting Factory tomorrow (tickets) and Maxwell’s tonight (tix still available).

Culture Shock kicks off tonight with Surfer Blood and others, but without Los Campesinos, who got stranded by a volcano.

The Roadburn Festival is underway in Tilburg in the Netherlands. Stay tuned for reports from the ground.

Coachella starts today in California. You can stream it online.

Have Coachella open in one window and the Gwar Crack-A-Thon open in another (or go to the Crack-A-Thon in person).

The Cribs were supposed to be one of the streaming Coachella performances today, but not anymore.

Pavement played a US show at the Fox Theater last night. A video from the show below…

Spoon played Kimmel last night. Video below…

Kaki King plays Bowery Ballroom tonight. Last night she was at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Two nights ago she was on Fallon. Video from the TV appearance below…
