Sat. Mar.5: Something For Everyone On A Saturday Night

Posted: March 5, 2011 by Windsor Zene in Previews, Weekly Round Up

It’s a another great night for music in the city, independent original talent of all kinds are perched and ready to pounce on your wanting ears. Acoustic, Folk, Punk and Metal there is little something for everyone in the Windsor Scene tonight.

At the Taloola Cafe catch Den-igan with an earlier acoustic set at 9pm. Den-igan (Danielle Haslip) seems completely at home on the stage and her warm soulful voice can not be ignored; the intimacy of the all-acoustic stage will set the perfect tone for her songs. She is currently working to record her debut album that will hopefully see its release by summer’s end. Until then you’ll have to catch her live around town at shows like these.

At the Blind Dog get your fill of punk rock from the likes of No Clue, Bullet Tooth Tony, Planet World and Silent Movie Type. No Clue, featuring members of EVL, Laughing Casket, Valerie Page, and Awake to a Dream cover past EVL songs as well as classics from acts like Black Sabbath and The Misfit. Look for this relatively new band to start pumping out their own tunes over the coming months. Coming from the county is Leamington’s Bullet Tooth Tony and Kingsville’s Silent Movie Type, who have been playing some great shows in support of their debut release Last Supper Fit For A King, including the big Capitol Theatre gig back in January. Planet World, another newer act brings their brand of rock to the table rounding out a bill full of loud riffs and pounding drums.

In the basement of the Loop Building, see performances from Weapon Of Choice, with special guests Heaven Ablaze, Xempt, and After Ashes at the legendary Coach & Horses. There is no better home for metal in the City and Nicole Feetham (who has taken over booking duties in Scott Funnel’s absence) has been doing a fantastic job of keeping the weekends filled with hard-hitting young talent. Upstairs at the FM Lounge catch Lonesome Lefty’s weekly gig; for fan blues, country and western there is no better place to be.

Finally, Pat Robitaille makes a return visit to his hometown at The Phog Lounge with special guest appearances from Michou boys Efan! and Mike Hargreaves. Pat Robitaille is a musician who has been able to transcend the city’s borders finding a great amount of success on a National level. “At 24, Patrick has independently released four full-length albums and countless EPs, held the #1 spot on MuchMoreMusic’s Daily Top 10 countdown, played hundreds of shows with world-class acts including support spots for The Beach Boys, Gordon Lightfoot, The Tragically Hip, Peter Frampton & Matthew Good. He’s also performed at the Mariposa Folk Festival & Hillside, two legendary Canadian music festivals.” He’s currently playing in support of his latest release, Change, produced in conjunction with Adam Rideout-Arkell (Yellow Wood, AMRA) which is his most polished and mature release to date. The boys from Michou also have a lot to be proud of, recently winning $25,000 dollars as they became Verge Radio’s artist of the year. Go to the show and give them a high five for this epic accomplishment.
