Our staff picks of the week:

@KRBronson recommends: Not staying home a single night this week. And Ride.

@Seraphina_L recommends: With Coachella right around the corner (and staying for two weekends — April 10-13 and April 17-19), there are plenty of shows around town to get you pumped up for the ultimate SoCal music fest. For instance, you get Jenny Lewis performing three shows around her two Coachella appearances. You can catch her Tuesday at the Glass House in Pomona, Thursday at the Echoplex and April 14 at Pappy & Harriet’s. She’ll be performing songs from her latest album ‘The Voyager,” and probably some older favorites as well.
