From rock to indie music mixer shows, the Knitting Factory in Reno has a busy April planned. Check out these five shows at one of Reno's premier concert halls:

RAC, (with Aether ST , Jami Deep) - Friday, April 10
Remixers to indie luminaries such as Washed Out, Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Death Cab for Cutie, RAC -- short for Remix Artist Collective -- is the brainchild of producer/multi-instrumentalist André Allen Anjos. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.00.

Interpol, (with Guy Blakeslee) - Monday, April 20
Interpol stand tall among the New York guitar acts that blew up in the early 2000s, back when rock fans watched bands through plumes of cigarette smoke instead of through phones. This is an all ages show. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $28 - $76.

Tech N9ne's Special Effects Tour: Tech N9ne WITH Krizz Kaliko , Chris Webby , Murs , King 810 , Zuse - Wednesday, April 22
Tech N9ne is a Knitting Factory favorite. First of all, the dude's label is called Strange Music, so there's that. From the spiked red hair, to the religious imagery, to the downright insane way he plays with the flow, Tech N9ne has always been different. Come see for yourself. Tickets are $28.50 - $60. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Twin Shadow (with Erik Hassle, Until the Ribbon Breaks) - Monday, April 27th
Born in the Dominican Republic, raised in Florida, and boasting an expansive musical background that includes composing for a touring dance company and fronting a Boston punk group, George Lewis, Jr. put his own multifaceted spin on chillwave when he started making solo bedroom recordings in Brooklyn as Twin Shadow. A born crooner with a nostalgic yet bittersweet '80s tone to his music, Lewis made demos that soon caught the attention of Grizzly Bear's similar-minded Chris Taylor, who produced Forget and released it on his Terrible Records imprint in 2010. While spending much of that year and 2011 touring, Lewis, Jr. also made time to record his second Twin Shadow album, Confess, in Los Angeles. Inspired by a motorcycle crash he survived a couple of years prior, the album boasted a glossier sound and more direct songwriting than Lewis, Jr.'s debut.

Big Data (with Moth and the Flame), - Tuesday, April 28th
Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience. Oh, and they also had a huge hit across many platforms with a song called "Dangerous," which has also been remixed numerous times on the Big Data 1.6 release. River Cuoma of Weezer fame sings with Big Data on another hit, "Snowed In."
