Best Shows This Week: April 22 to April 28, 2019

The National Palladium mainbar

Another year of Coachella has passed, but its spirit lives on in Los Angeles. The latest edition of Best Shows This Week highlights veterans of festivals past such as Local Natives, Swervedriver, Earl Sweatshirt and Dwight Yoakam. And now that the art of reuniting bands has now passed to LiveNation, Bikini Kill will bring that long-missed reunion experience to the Hollywood Palladium for their first two of four shows. Find out about all these and more below.
