Fans are happy that Katie Herzig got over her bad case of stage fright and took the lead role in her first band; otherwise, of course, she wouldn’t be a singer-songwriter on tour. Louisvillians have gotten familiar with her, as she’s been through town a lot, at least until a couple of years back. Her last show here was in 2012, so there’ll be some real interest, particularly since there’s a new album, Walk Through Walls, that she’s promoting. She’ll be at Headliners on April 26. Noah Gunderson will open. Tickets for the show are $15.

Here’s the official video for “Walk Through Walls”:

The Japanese instrumental rock band Mono made Louisville a regular stop for three years in a row back in 2006 -’08, then didn’t come back until now. They’ve recorded two albums since, Hymn To The Immortal Wind and For My Parents, with For My Parents being their first record in eight years not recorded by Steve Albini. As they are primarily a live band, dedicated to creating an unforgettable experience, the recording seems like a photo outtake of a movie – one tiny chunk of the live show. They’re playing Headliners on April 25, with Young Widows opening. Tickets are $10 plus $2.25 fee.

Here’s “Follow The Map”:

Diamond Pub will bring in The Terrapin Flyers with Melvin Seals and The Allmanacs with Johnny Neel on April 25 for a Tribute to The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers It’s a kind of musical genetic implant, adding former members of each defunct band to a tribute band, layering on a veneer of genuineness. It’s kind of like making love to a Marilyn Monroe look-alike who’s wearing one of Marilyn’s wigs and maybe a pair of her hose. If you are fan of either or both, then you know what you’ll get – the most famous tunes plus a large swath of lesser-known ones plus a surprise or two. Tickets are $12 adv./ $15 DoS.

The first announced act for the Mercury Ballroom, Christina Perri, makes a stop at the new concert hall on April 25, with a tour titled “Head Or Heart,” which is also the title of her second album, released on April 1. Perri’s single, “Jar Of Hearts,” which was featured on the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance,” sold three million copies following its release in 2010. It also scored her a record deal with Atlantic Records, which released her debut album, Lovestrong, in May 2011. She subsequently recorded “A Thousand Years” for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.  That single sold four million copies. So it’s clear the gal has marketing clout and an ability to write a monster hit pop song. Birdy opens. Go hear her for yourself at the Mercury Ballroom for $22.50 + $10 ticketing fee,  in advance or $25 DoS
