Light in the Attic Records reissues the strange debut album by a late, great American music icon, PLUS the Pouzza Festival and this week's other important shows and DJ nights for rock 'n' roll, punk and metal connoisseurs.
One of the best bands ever emits a massive turd of a record and should probably be taken behind the barn and shot. PLUS CKUT turns 25, there's a new Trigger Effect record, NDQ gets a Distroboto, Bloodshot Bill plays in the afternoon and a true-blue soul man comes to town.
Launching a record with two shows at Sala, this week, one of the best musicians ever to grace our city. PLUS great live music all week c/o Nails, Titus Andronicus, Saltland, Li'l Andy, Putamen Insula and We Are Wolves, and DJ nights, karaoke and '80s horror on screen.
Ahead of this weekend's annual feast of vinyl and celebration of the local wax-shack, MVD's got a couple of great docs about the battle to keep indie record-retailers alive (and one that's just tiresome). PLUS where to rawk and roll and thrash and bang and gaze (and drink) this week.
Digging into the majestic new record by Montreal's Besnard Lakes, officially launching with a show on Saturday. But there's stiff competition on the concert circuit this week, with loads of righteous punk, metal and rock 'n' roll bands pouring into our venues, beginning with the King Khan & BBQ show tonight.
Last Friday at Metropolis, a giant among men restored rock ’n’ roll’s primal power, honesty and soul. And you probably missed it. PLUS this week in live punk, metal, avant garde and rock, readings, DJ nights and more.
Bow down before Beelzebub's favourite lounge singer, Nick Cave, PLUS a 1990 concert by Bad Seeds spinoff band / industrial pioneers Einstürzende Neubauten captured on a new DVD, AND the week in live punk and metal.
Local live band Jerusalem in My Heart launch their debut album, and it'll wring you the fuck out. PLUS the week's calendar for live rock, punk, comedy and R&B (?!), from Attention at tonight's launch for stagebanter.ca to Corona Ferox and more 13th anniversary action at l'Esco to the weekend's Oi fest, featuring Rush. Or not.
Digging into new records by Pissed Jeans and Oneirogen, PLUS dive-bar comedy, classic rawk covers, metal DJ nights, improv indulgence, gritty rock 'n' roll and countrified sounds, all in the week's eclectic show calendar.
