Help me find good shows for my road trip!

Possibly an odd request, I apologize, but I am taking a road trip in late March to the east coast and was planning on hitting some concerts on the way, so I'm looking for some help finding good bands that are on tour. As such, I figured I should check with a community of people that I know have some of the same musical taste. Essentially, I will be going from Kansas City, Missouri to Rome, Georgia to visit a friend's grave, and then to Charleston, South Carolina to see some old friends that live there. I have from March 24 to April 2. Unfortunately, I know Ben doesn't have any shows in the area during that time frame or I'd make that happen for sure. My tastes are fairly broad, but I tend toward indie, folk, alternative, etc. Top three artists are probably Radical Face/Ben, The Mountain Goats, and Ramshackle Glory for perspective, but I also dig more electronic/pop stuff like MGMT or Sylvan Esso all the way to borderline country with Jason Isbell or Danny Schmidt. So far, I've seen that Conor Oberst is in St. Louis on March 25 so unless something better comes up, that w ill probably be my first top. Basically, no genre is off limits so suggest anyone who's on tour right now that you like and I'll check them out and see if I can fit them into my route. Thanks, all!
