If you’re looking for a way to chill out before Vinyl this evening, consider Acoustic Africa at Club Soda. Oliver Mtukudzi, Habib Koite, and Afel Bokoum will (jointly) take to the stage and run through some absolute classics.
Art Matters, the festival that erupts in the city of Montreal annually thanks to Concordia University, is back in a big way. It’s scheduled to go on from March 1st to March 19th, and tonight, March 4th, is the Opening Party. Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been snowed-under (get it?) in work lately. Or at the very least, buried in what I should be doing. So with that being said my show-going/midday-procrastinating has been and will continue to be minimal for the rest of this week.

The most noted hipster recluse since J.D.

THIS IS HUGE. This show is basically the-dream. As Steve mentioned in his review of their debut LP, Native Speaker, for which this show celebrates, Braids are our most tagged artist and truly one of my favorite bands.
