Slick Rick The Ruler
​This week's just announced shows list is one of the longest in quite some time. There's a higher quotient of indie rock upcoming shows announced this week, with plenty of Coachella scraps.

Yes, even if certain music-related boycotts recently gussied up their websites, bands are still going to take the time and play this fair state.

Mixed in amongst this week's indie rock plethora is a Slick Rick show at The Clubhouse. The British born, New York raised M.C. is best known for being a story-rap innovator, coming of age in what many consider to be the Golden Age of hip-hop. Songs such as "Children's Story," "La Di Da Di" and "Mona Lisa" propelled Slick Rick to fame in the 1980s. His appearance on Outkast's "Da Art of Storytellin' (Part 1)" -- perhaps one of the band's finest songs -- from 1998's Aquemini helped expose Slick Rick to another generation of hip hop fans.

Joining Slick Rick with just announced shows of their own are CSS, The New Pornographers, Titus Andronicus and Pinback.
