Phantogram reclaim the top spot ahead of their sold out First Avenue show April 13. They were one of the bands that played our Public Radio Rocks showcase in Austin during SXSW, and they lead the pack of FIVE inductees to our Chart Hall of Fame: Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Caroline Smith. That many in one week has never happened before in over 4 years of the show, and that means there's heaps of room for new entries next week!

Vote for your favorites this week for a chance to attend Pert Near Sadnstone's album release show at the Fitzgerald Theatre on April 12!

We have just two new entries this wee; old hands at chart action: Jake Bugg just made a new video for Shangri La track "Messed Up Kids"
which will be included on a new EP out May 12 including three unreleased Rick Rubin produced songs; and Atmosphere, whose new album Southsiders will be out in May when they'll again headline their own Soundset Festival on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend at Canterbury Park — hope all the snow has gone by then!

Even though the flurries are still swirling here, summer festival season is about to get underway in a couple of weeks at Coachella in Indio, California. One of the big new break out stars from Australia will be making her major US debut there, Courtney Barnett, who's back up to #4 this week. She's also booked a show at Minneapolis' Varsity Theater on June 24. She'll have to be careful with the heat at Coachella, her song "Avant Gardener" is all about not being able to breath and passing out in 40 degrees — that's Celsius!

Climbing up to #14 are one of the big SXSW hits from the UK this year, Temples. They are also Coachella bound and have had their local date moved from the Turf Club to First Avenue's Mainroom on April 24.

Another big mover this week is St. Vincent who will be at the State Theatre next Thursday, April 3
