Fri. March 18: Friday Night Round-Up (Hangover Edition)
Here’s hoping you’re not too hungover from last night (Yes. You did drink that much.) to hit up a great Friday night in the Windsor music scene.
At the Phog Lounge check out Burlington’s Sandman Viper Command. This indie rock four piece has been getting all sorts of attention since the release of their debut album Everybody See This. To record the album, the band holed up in a barn outside of Hamilton, Ontario for six months obsessively writing and compulsively jamming. The end product is album that captures the band’s raw sound and garnered them critical praise, comparisons to Sloan and opening slots for great Canadian acts like Holy Fuck, The Arkells and Rural Alberta Advantage. This summer sees the band touring heavily in support of the release and a slot on this year’s Edgefest.
Some Windsor based musician out and about around town this evening to! At the Coach & Horses hear music from a slew of local talent which includes Acousticfire, The Nefidovs, Paul Adams, Monequai Moon. This diverse bill has a little something for everyone; and with the night being dubbed the ‘St.Patrick’s Day Hangover Party’ ecpect these acts to keep the party going from last night well into tomorrow. For a quieter but fun filled night you can head down to Walkerville for the Semi-Spontaneous Accordion Show at the Taloola Cafe. “Have a shot or three of espresso, and use the burst of energy that gives you to dance around, stomp your feet and clap your hands to the beats and squeals being squeezed out of the pearly accordion by Taloola’s own Kate Romain.” Definitely something a little different for your ears and the only show in Windsor tonight that doesn’t have a guitar player front and centre. This show has an earlier start at 8:00pm.
