Who: The Wilhelm Brothers
Where: Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria
When: 9:30 p.m.
Victoria's Take: Acoustic indie duo The Wilhelm Brothers is so effortlessly indie-cool. With one wielding a cello and the other on guitar, it's a coffee shop band made in paradise. The two perform original songs as well as favorite covers (the cover of "First Day of My Life" by Bright Eyes is so cute). Check out more of their work on YouTube.

Who: The SteelDrivers with Logan Brill
Where: Bijou Theatre
When: 8 p.m.
Melodi's Take: This Grammy-nominated bluegrass band is sure to impress the Knoxville crowds. Originally from neighboring Nashville, The SteelDrivers has a unique sound that separates them from typical bluegrass music, and truly have interesting tunes and catchy choruses. Also featuring Logan Brill, this Saturday night concert will have the Bijou audience hyped with excitement.
Sunday, April 21
What: Art in Action
Where: Liz-Beth & Co
When: 10 a.m.
Melodi's Take: The Weekender often invites students to musical events around campus, but this Sunday we're inviting you to Art in Action, a hands-on art presentation at Liz-Beth & Co., a cool gallery in West Knoxville. Sundays are great for chilling anyway, so go ahead and get your hands on some art and relax the last weekend before finals take over everyone's lives.
