Picks This Week: Crazy Bag Lady, Chris Isaak, Hurray for the Riff Raff and more

420 Bake Sale
With apologies to any other show going on this evening, how could this not be the pick? DJ Drama and a packed bill of up-and-coming hip-hop heads to do their thing.
6 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, at the Beacham, $20-$100

Symphony Under the Stars
Get comfy on a blanket while the UCF Symphony Orchestra plays a night concert outdoors at the Reflecting Pond? I'm sorry, that's just impossibly cute.
8 p.m. Thursday, April 21, at the UCF Reflection Pond, free

Crazy Bag Lady
This young Savannah band is on some deathtrip kicks, with a frontman channeling both Gene Vincent and Darby Crash. Wha?!
11 p.m. Friday, April 22, at Uncle Lou's, $5

Orlando Overdrive
Bullies, jocks, Ogre, you're too late. Orlando has a huge, thriving nerd music scene and on Saturday, eight of the finest will be showing off their cross-genre chops. Perfect primer.
4 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at Backbooth, $10-$13

Heavy Drag
Miami quartet headlines an official Levitation Fest pre-party (dunno, but good fest); their sound is cavernous and delirious, like early UK shoegaze.
8 p.m. Sunday, April 24, at Will's Pub, $5

Hurray for the Riff Raff
Alynda Lee Segarra's Hurray for the Riff Raff are reclaiming various folk and roots songforms from the land of Prairie Home Companion and adding a lil' grit and grime.
9 p.m. Monday, April 25, at the Social, $15-$20

Chris Isaak
Though he's best known for "Wicked Game" (hell of a song though) and a tv comedy, Isaak and his music are aging surprisingly well, giving off distinct Orbison vibes.
8 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at Hard Rock Live, $30-$60
