How To Destroy Angels How To Destroy Angels How To Destroy Angels

Reznor's post NIN project: Even though Nine Inch Nails' hiatus was short-lived and the group's already back on tap to play this year's Lollapalooza, there's still time to check out front man Trent Reznor's side project How To Destroy Angels. While his electronic wizardry remains, his wife/former West Indian Girl singer Mariqueen Maandig serves as front woman in an entrancing and unexpected chilled out sidestep.

Johnny Marr Johnny Marr Johnny Marr Johnny Marr

Marr sings solo and Smiths tunes: With Morrissey missing so many tour dates as of late, fans of The Smiths are getting a second chance to hear the group's groundbreaking songs thanks to a solo outing from Johnny Marr. The singer/songwriter/guitarist also just dropped the new individual offering "The Messenger," which updates his textbook Brit rock stylings to today. Thursday, April 25 at Metro:

Diana Krall Diana Krall Diana Krall Diana Krall

Krall's casual crooning: One of contemporary jazz's best selling artists turns to T Bone Burnett's production for a slew of under the radar covers generally spanning the 1920s to 30s. While it's likely Diana Krall will spend much of her tour touting last fall's "Glad Rag Doll," there's still plenty of room for originals, standards and love songs of any stripe in her diverse repertoire.
