When March comes in like a lamb and rains, it goes out like a lion and pours. And roars when it comes to Canadian indie shows in Windsor and Detroit this month. Two left and counting
Tues., Mar. 26
Shout Out Out Out Out
Magic Stick Lounge, Detroit
With Heloise & The Savoir Faire
THE show we've most looked forward to in March. We'd love this Edmonton band for the titles of their songs alone: "Chicken Soup For The F*^k You," "Now That I've Given Up Hope I Feel Much Better," "Your Shitty Record Won't Mix Itself." But accompanying the words filtered through a vocoder is some of the best dance/house/electronic music we know. These are real songs with a beginning, middle and end, not just stretches of repetitive mindless beats for the feets.
Listen: "Never The Same Way Twice" from their 2012 release, Spanish Moss and Total Loss
Sat., Mar. 30: Elliott BROOD, The Locusts Have No King and 24 Sussex, Capitol Theatre, Windsor. We never miss a BROOD show if we can help it, and with all of them parents now, who knows how long they'll keep touring? Locusts are a Windsor favourite, too.
