Spring has sprung and several artists, speakers, musicals, and other performers are making their way to the Twin Cities to entertain. Minneapolis and St. Paul have a tremendous amount of talent visiting this spring and there are dozens of events for you to attend this month. Here are some of the shows you definitely don't want to miss this April.

1. "Matilda" - The Musical

When: April 1-2, various times
Where: Orpheum Theatre

Hopefully you didn't miss it already, but if you haven't seen this movie from 1996, I highly recommend you do. The only thing I can imagine being better than the movie is a Broadway musical.

2. Green Day & Against Me!

When: April 1st, 7:30pm
Where: Xcel Energy Center

Green Day and Against Me! were just recently in the Twin Cities. We all know Green Day for their infamous songs "21 Guns" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," but you may not know of Against Me! just yet. If you're a Green Day fan, I hope you made it to this one!

3. Lewis Black - The Rant, White, and Blue Tour

When: April 1st, 8:00pm
Where: Pantages Theatre Minneapolis

Lewis Black is a comedian and "ranter" who tours around the country going off about anything and everything that bothers him in today's society. This is a must-see event for anyone who wants a good laugh and vent-sesh. If you missed it this time around, no worries--he'll be back.

4. Chris Brown & 50 Cent

When: April 9th, 7:30pm
Where: Xcel Energy Center

This concert has me reminiscing on the good 'ol days of middle school dances. Hopefully they'll perform a mix of throwbacks and current tracks! We can't forget songs like "With You" or "In Da Club."

5. "Wicked"

When: April 12-13th, various times
Where: Orpheum Theater

Wicked is a classic Broadway musical that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. You'll smile, you'll laugh, and you'll cry. Then you'll want to see it all over again.

6. John Mayer

When: April 15th, 7:30pm
Where: Xcel Energy Center

Featuring songs like, "Gravity," "Your Body's A Wonderland," "Free Fallin'," and "Waiting on the World to Change," this is a concert you don't want to miss. A dreamy voice, handsome face, and spectacular music are a package deal when you purchase a ticket to this event.

7. 21 Savage

When: April 19th, 8:00pm
Where: Myth Live Event Center

21 Savage is an up and coming rapper who made his first splash with hit, "No Heart." From Atlanta, Georgia, he's starting to make a name for himself around the country.

8. MayDay Parade

When: April 20th, 6:00pm
Where: First Avenue

American rock band, MayDay Parade, will be hitting the stage this spring at dozens of cities around the country. Thankfully, this quintet from Florida is making a stop in Minneapolis.

9. Def Leppard, Poison, & Tesla

When: April 21st, 7:00pm
Where: Xcel Energy Center

Three incredible heavy metal/hard rock bands at the same event? This is a once in a lifetime show! It's definitely not something you want to "see next time they come around."

10. The xx

When: April 28th, 8:30pm
Where: Palace Theatre St. Paul

If you haven't heard of The xx, you should now. The xx is a London-based group who dropped their debut album in 2009. Listen to one of their top hits, "Angels" to get a taste of what they're all about.

11. The Real Housewives Live

When: April 29th, 8:00pm
Where: State Theatre

If you love TV drama and gossip, this is the show for you. The Bravo! show "The Real Housewives" are going to tour for an "uncensored and unapologetic" event.

10 New Year's Mindsets For College Students, As Told By 'Bob's Burgers'

Alriiiiiight 2019! - Linda

1. Don't stress that you didn't get an "A" in that insanely hard class you took this year

https://goo.gl/images/qqeVHw

Emailing and running to the professor who didn't round up your 89.7% up to an "A" after doing everything in your power, and all those extra credit assignments. *sighs*

It's in the past now, it's gonna be a new year and you'll work even harder now to secure that next "A".

Spoiler alert, you'll be fine, will you be thinking about this class in 15 years to come? Heck no, you'll be too busy relaxing on a beach, taking a vacation from your super successful job.

2. Appreciate all those little things your parents did for you this year

https://goo.gl/images/hj74UM

The more you grow up, and start paying for most things, taking care of yourself, cooking, cleaning, and so much more. You come to really appreciate every little thing your parent does for you every day. Even if it's just that little text message every now and then, or sending you a few bucks randomly. Try to say thank you more in 2019!

3. Don't do those crazy fad diets, they won't last

https://goo.gl/images/Qqroxf

You don't have to just drastically change your diet once the New Year starts, and only eat Kale for breakfast lunch a and dinner. I think a great overall mindset of consistently wanting to better yourself emotionally and physically over time is a great foundation to have. Also, surround yourself with people that are doing the same, you will be set.

4. It's already almost 2019, are you ready to be one year closer to "adulting"?

https://goo.gl/images/qncv3E

Do you have a job lined up after college? How many places have you interned for? What's your GPA?

How triggered are you after reading those? Despite Tina's face in this gif, it will be all okay, no matter what path you are taking, YOU GOT THIS TRUST ME!

5. It's okay if 2019 isn't filled with dollar signs, you can still have fun as a poor college student, we're all in this together

https://goo.gl/images/xgDhdj

Maybe in 2019, you will be slightly less poor than in 2018! Positivity! Nevertheless, you and your friends are all in the same boat, the boat might be sinking slowly, but hey have fun on the way down.

6. Just go with your friend that has been begging you to do Karaoke at the local bar for New Years Eve

https://goo.gl/images/2ksKW4

This past year I have personally tried to continuously branch out and explore new things that are out of my comfort zone. And through this mindset, I have met so many amazing people, even if you don't initially want to go, push yourself, go do something out of your comfort zone in 2019.

7. Trust your gut (or cat) and let go of those toxic people in your life

https://goo.gl/images/hyInES

Going into 2019 drop all those people in your life that are bringing you down, surround yourself with friends that are challenging you and pushing you to be the best person you can be.

8. Get ready to absolutely kill this New Year! 

https://goo.gl/images/fG3eqK

Yes this is the time to make 2019 your bitch. Say thanks to 2018, for the lessons learned, and tell 2019 to watch out.

9. Then get excited about being reunited with all your friends to start the New Year!

https://goo.gl/images/UTvi5e

Leaving school and going home to see your families is always relaxing and necessary but then after the first week of being home, you already get excited about going back to school, getting in the swing of things and seeing all your buddies see and what 2019 has in store for all you hooligans.

10. Throw around some compliments more, let all your loved ones know you appreciate the heck out of them

https://goo.gl/images/huCMVL

I think compliment people exactly as Bob did in this picture, I don't need to expand further here, you can't go wrong.
