Dilly ding, dilly dong. We can cut the smalltalk, you really have some great options this weekend and the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Beverly, Waxahatchee and a Woods/Ultimate Painting double-header didn’t even make the cut. If you aren’t getting out to see a show, I’m not sure I can ever be any help.
Thanks to Pete for subbing last week. Nothing helps me get over disappointing election results and earth shattering musicians dying (RIP Prince) than blowing a chunk of cash on records, so it’s more than fortuitous that my favourite label, The Numero Group, are hosting their third annual pop up this weekend; You can head over to 170 […]
Today is St Patrick’s Day… fantastic… now everyone in the city who ever saw a picture of a four leaf clover or had a pint of Guinness is apparently Irish. I might just curl up in a ball and hide, but that would be a mistake, because if you can avoid all the green pavement pizzas […]
Seems like the year is in full throttle now, even with the handbrake turn that is a leap year, and here we are in March already. This weekend sees multiple bands with new records, anniversaries and one of my favourite artists of the last few years. If there isn’t something to love here then we […]
I’m still not sure if I thank Washington, Lincoln, both, or none, for the short work week, but here we are, it’s Thursday already. We’re not going to get record-breaking freezing temperatures or 2 feet of snowfall this weekend, so for those who have been hermits the last couple of weekends, this is especially for […]
January has finally relinquished its death-grip on the world. It has been a rough start to 2016, but hopefully less choppy waters lie ahead, to help facilitate this, I am mostly prescribing a weekend of music that won’t often get out of the middle lane. Sometimes we all need to admit defeat and just slow […]
January always seems like a slow month gig-wise, but things are starting to pick up the pace. Ok, so there might be a snowstorm – deal with it, and consider how lucky we’ve been this winter as it is. Regardless of what the elements have in store, you’ll be well rewarded for any efforts made this weekend (although […]
Happy New Year! Welcome back! You look… well, we all put a bit of weight on over the holidays. Did you have a nice break? Me too. Any resolutions? No, me either. The important thing is we made it through 2015. New year, same drill, here are the top 5 shows of the weekend!
After a long weekend we’re back to a regular schedule and I hope everyone had a fulfilling Thanksgiving, whether you were with loved ones or just found a rare moment of tranquility when the city got a little less intense.
You’ve still got a few days to figure out Thanksgiving plans, which you’ll need because there are plenty of spectacular shows to catch this weekend. Be thankful for all the great music you can see, family plans can wait!
