April: lo and behold, a rightful end to the dour fortunes of winter and a return to better climes (though one must admit that the current weather makes this seem like a faraway tale).
But enough about weather, let's talk music. The Local's favourite venue Vega has several good concerts lined up this month, though some of the best ones have already sold out. South London poet, rapper and novelist Kate Tempest is our pick of the bunch. The young Mercury Prize winner will surely raise a few eyebrows with her witty word wizardy.
Nørrebro's Stengade is well represented again in our listings, with a farewell show for one of Copenhagen's legendary alternative country bands, Sink Ships and yet another Rub-a-Dub reggae Sunday to add to the many.
The end of the month is highlighted by a pair of American rock trios – Russian Circles and Helms Alee – who promise to blow the roof off the Jazzhouse, each in their own special way.
