It's my experience that April and September are the busiest touring months, but there are very few nights like tonight. The Casbah alone is responsible for six shows tonight! So here's your Wednesday rundown: At the Observatory, Oscar-winner Glen Hansard performs some of his vast catalog and hopefully all of those gems from "Once," while post-punk rockers Bear Hands return to town with a show at Music Box. It's gonna get loud at Soda Bar with Cymbals Eat Guitars, and the all-ages set can enjoy Chrome Sparks at the Irenic. On down the line, you can see Fruit Bats at Hideout, LA R&B act King at the Casbah, and Aaron "It's Been Awhile" Lewis plays at Humphreys. Those are some great choices to get you through the midweek hump.
