Music Monday: It’s Gonna Be May

April had everything from New York’s Frankie Cosmos to punk legends NOFX to Grammy nominated James Gay and winner Kirk Franklin. Now the month is winding down and May is approaching. Like the rest of the April, we’re ending on some high notes with a variety of greatness.

The Avett Brothers at Greek Theatre on 4/29

A band for over 15 years, these folk musicians have gained quite the following thanks to tossing in a number of different genres into the mix.

Identical twins, these sisters have been making music together for years, over 20 in fact. They’ve played everywhere and with everyone. Their indie pop style has garnered them opening slots for everyone from Paramore to Neil Young.
