    Vanessa Carlton headlines the Casbah Friday.

    The weekend is finally here and I couldn't be more excited about it. For many of you, Coachella is your weekend destination -- but if you're still going to be in town, you've got many amazing music options to choose from. At the Casbah, accomplished singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton has grown up since her early-'00s pop hits, and five studio records later, she's proving to be a skilled songstress worthy of a new listen. Meanwhile, Coachella artist Honne is in town with a show at the Belly Up, while "catchy and soulful electro-pop" trio Shaed headline Soda Bar. There are great shows all the way down the list and I hope there's something that catches your ear to make this weekend a great one.
