Sat. March 19th: Saturday Night Round-Up!

Posted: March 19, 2011 by Windsor Zene in Previews, Weekly Round Up

No shortage of live music in the city tonight! A cavalcade of independent original music is unleashed on the city of Windsor tonight; here’s a quick run down of the evening’s events.

First off we have an early start/all ages show at the Blind Dog as the ‘Turn That Shit Up Tour‘ comes to the city. Featuring Assassinate The Following with opening performances from The Jettison Commitment, Goliath, Hellraiser and We Remain. This show promises to be on of the loudest of the evening with each act bringing a distinct brand of heaviness to the table. Whether it’s the technical precision of Assassinate, the chugging riffs of Goliath or the hardcore punk sound of Hellraiser, this is not one to be missed. Doors open up at 5:30pm.

Later on in the evening get even more technically based metal and punk at The Blind Dog when local outfits Aeron’s Wake, Found Unconscious and Pomegranate Tiger take the stage starting at 11:00pm. Go out and congratulate Pomegranate Tiger for their recent win in the University of Windsor’s ‘Expose Yourself‘ music contest!

Even more heaviness to be had! Down at the Coach & Horses se the likes of Gypsy Chief Goliath, Hammerdown and Reasons Lost. Gypsy Chief Goliath frontman Al ‘Yeti’ Bones has been making some really great moves in the Canadian music scene with the recent formation of the Yeti Agency (See our past article HERE) and playing in one the best bands to pound your fist to doesn’t hurt either. For a fan of the heavy tonight can’t get much better.

On the softer side of things, head to the Milk Coffee Bar and see acoustic performances from to of the city’s brightest young talents: Tony Coates and Zarasutra. Both of these musicians write great emotionally driven songs and have fantastic voices to match! Read our Emerging Artist profile on Zarasutra that we published earlier today by clicking HERE.

Phinally at the Phog Lounge (See what I did there?) see one of Windsor’s longest running veteran acts in The Ten Indians. It’s hard to write anything that hasn’t been said about this fantastic group of musicians, they are easily one the the city’s best honed acts. Tonight the band will be doing something though, live broadcasting their entire performance via the internet, so even if you decide to stay in you can still enjoy some of the Windsor Music Scene’s most revered talent. Opening up the evening is the soulful solo piano stylings of the one and only George Bozanich. Be sure to visit Phog Lounge’s Ustream Channel if you can’t make it out in the flesh.
