Fri.March 25th: The Windsor Zene Friday Round-Up!

Posted: March 25, 2011 by Windsor Zene in Previews, Weekly Round Up

No shortage on live music in the city this weekend! Here’s a quick rundown of  Friday’s events with some video sample to help you navigate your way to the best show for you!

Arguably the biggest show of the evening, check out Ottawa grind-core heavyweights Fuck The Facts at the legendary Coach & Horses. With solid opening acts like Assassinate The Following, Shinje and Goliath and the recently added Our Own Demise this show promises to bring the walls down and the Coach is the only place it could, nay, SHOULD happen. This is quite a week for the coach following the epic Ken Mode/Cellos show this past Tuesday. Check out our interview with Fuck The Fact’s Topon Das about tonight’s show.


Lots going tonight for fans of acoustic singer-song writers. First there is the massive 1st Annual Songwriters Festival happening at The Mill. Tons of great talent involved in this event which also runs on Saturday, March 26th. Tonight see performances from:  Peter Boyer (Same Latitude As Rome), Glen MacNeil (ReGael, Celtic Cross), Linda Girard and Adam Gilchrist (Cloverjoy, Caught In The Moss, The Butterfield Gateway) among others. For more info see our related article on the event HERE. Catch Tony Coates plays as he plays a solo gig at the Taloola Cafe this evening continuing his push to become one of the best known acts in the city. Over at The Phog Lounge see and hear acoustic performances from Sophist, Acousticfire and Daniyal Malik. Finally at Milk Coffee Bar check out another showcase featuring the songwriter stylings of Monique Belanger with special guest Silly Karli’s.


Lauren Hedges of The Windsor Zene/Scene: “Friday the 25th is a very busy night in the Windsor music scene, but I’ll give you the rundown on my show of choice (and believe me; it wasn’t an easy one). At The Blind Dog you can see Silver GloryAwake to a DreamNuclear SunriseBleachJonas & the Massive Attraction, and Anonymous Bosch for only $10 (with the purchase of an advance ticket).  A night of rock’n’roll at it’s finest. Pretty stoked for this one.”


Finally, at The FM Lounge, Windsor gets treated by a visit from the always enjoyable Ron Leary. Tonight Ron will be performing with a 5 piece band behind him featuring Mr.Chill and Scotty Hughes. He’s also brought along the fantastic Pilgrims Of Brock from Toronto for their Windsor Scene debut. Make sure you catch this performance because Leary has been making mention on his Facebook page about trying to book some upcoming shows in non-traditional venues and he may be a little harder to find the next time he comes through town.
