It’s been a while but let’s get to it: here are some shows this week!
THURSDAY, JANUARY 22
Les Breastfeeders + Vulgar, You! + Loose Pistons @ l’Escogriffe
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
Bad Nylon + Jonathan @ TRH Bar
Check out the buttery-smooth stylings of local “post-hypersexualization” rap group Bad Nylon.
Doors open at 9 p.m., PWYC.
Zola Jesus + Deradoorian @ Phi Centre
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
Téléphone Maison + Hellenica + Personal Suave + Philippe Vandal + Montagne Glacier @ La Passe
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).
