Weeeeeoooooo! Look at all these cool shows this week!
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9
Jeunesse Cosmique is one of the most interesting labels in Montreal, representing a truly eclectic collection of artists that have one thing in common: their music can be described as experimental or just plain weird. This event will feature live painting by local artist Chang E Ling.
Show starts at 9 p.m., PWYC ($5 suggested).
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10
My favourite weirdo/jazz/punk band will be playing two sets throughout the evening. According to the event description, there will be a real live grand piano! That eats children! Kids Eat Crayons have also just released their first ever music video for a song called ‘Winston Eats Shit’. Check it out!
Show starts at 10:30 p.m., $10.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11
Appalaches are an instrumental post rock band. Guitarist Mat Jason Blanchet will be leaving the band to live abroad so this is your chance to see them with their current lineup.
Show starts at 9 p.m., $12.
Montreal Psych Fest’s main organizer Tasha Class put on a three-day festival this year by dishing out a lot of money from her own pocket. If you feel so inclined, help her out by going to this show and dropping some cash in the bucket.
Show starts at 10 p.m., PWYC.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12
NOÏSUNDAÉÈ is an afternoon concert series that takes place every Sunday at La Plante. It seeks to showcase artists whose work may not otherwise see the light of day because it may be too weird, non-traditional or fun for mainstream ears. At the end of the show, attendees can enjoy a meal prepared by the Plant Community Kitchen for a small donation.
This week features Jamie Dunkle and his “projet de drone pesant pour orgue électrique”; Rochester, NY ensemble Gay Angel; Orian; and Portable Cosmoshrine, the solo project of Shota from Wreckage with Stick.
Show starts at 3:30 p.m., PWYC.
King Tuff’s third full-length Black Moon Spell is out now. “Los Angeles, full of its screaming coyotes and creeping helicopters, surely slathered its sexy, twisted, hairy, polluted spirit all over Black Moon Spell. The Sunset Strip shat itself when it heard all these guitar solos.” — Black Moon Spell bio page on Sub Pop Records.
Doors open at 8 p.m., $13 in advance via Blue Skies Turn Black or $15 at the door.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15
A constantly revolving lineup and a mix of so many genres it’ll make your head spin (including surf rock, death metal and traditional Middle Eastern folk influences), Secret Chiefs 3 is really unlike anything else.
Doors open at 8 p.m., $20 via Blue Skies Turn Black or at the door.
