It’s been a while but let’s get to it: here are some shows this week!
THURSDAY, JANUARY 22
This one’s a benefit for a friend of the bands and promoters who lost everything in a fire recently. Even if you don’t know the guy (I don’t), this will be a killer show because all of the shows that Analogue Addiction promote are sweaty, noisy and super fun.
Doors open at 9 p.m., $8 at the door.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 23
Check out the buttery-smooth stylings of local “post-hypersexualization” rap group Bad Nylon.
Doors open at 9 p.m., PWYC.
Stark, cold and a little melancholy, Zola Jesus’ latest Taiga is the singer-songwriter’s foray into more pop territory without losing the clean electronic edge.
Doors open at 8 p.m., $21.25 at the door or online via Phi Centre.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 24
Local music label Jeunesse Cosmique is one of the most unique in the city and their showcases are out of this world. Do yourself a real favour and chill the fuck out.
Show starts at 9 p.m., PWYC ($8 suggested).
