Weekend Round-Up: December 2-4

Posted: December 1, 2011 by Windsor Zene in Previews, Weekly Round Up

Lots of great music happening in WIndsor this weekend, as per usual. No matter what your genre is, there’ll be something for you to go out and enjoy.


Friday December 2

The legendary Coach and Horses (156 Chatham St. W, basement level) will be hosting a night of metal on Friday, include scene staple Devilz By Definition, (check out a recent interview with band member Bruce Munro) Reasons Lost, heavy metal from Leamington, a new metal-core band from the area, Always a New Day, and visiting from Hamilton, Blacktop Recess. Heavy breakdowns, melodic vocals, and technical shredding define this metal band’s sound. (Doors at 9pm, 19+, no cover)


At The Dominion House Tavern night one of a showcase of local punk and hardcore bands will be taking place. Bands featured include Dead Weight, Get Bent, Autumn’s Autopsy, and Ad Nauseam. Check out this week’s feature on the show. (Doors at 7pm, all ages, $5/$7 for both days)


Phog Lounge (157 University Ave. W) will be hosting a techno/hip-hop night, with Toronto’s D-sisive making an appearance with his smooth lyrics over solid beats.  CWMA nominee CityReal from Vancouver will be performing his politically charged raps as well, with Windsor’s own dubstep master, Dstruct.o rounding off that bill. (doors at 9pm, 19+)




Saturday December 3


It’ll be an all instrumental night at The Coach (156 Chatham St. W) on Saturday, with Celtic-metal outfit Aeron’s Wake fiddling their way into your consciousness. They’ll be joined by Red Red Run who perform a very free-flowing, organic type of music, and the relaitively new Omnisyn with their ambient and technical style. (9pm, 19+, free)




The Dominion Hosue Tavern (3140 Sandwich St.) will be on round two of local hardcore, punk, and metal, this time with Seven Out, Reasons Lost, Blackheart, and Dead Man’s Will. Further details can be found in the show’s highlight article posted earlier this week. (Doors at 7pm, all ages, $5/$7 for both days)

One of a number of shows displaced by The Blind Dog’s misfortune, Silverstein, Falling with Glory, The Tragedy of Mariam, and Horizons will be performing at The Room (255 Ouellette Ave). A night of local pop-rock in support of a national radio artist in an intimate setting; couldn’t ask for better. (6 pm, all ages, $15 ADV/$20 ATD)





Villains Beastro (256 Pelissier) will be the scene of metal outfit Grand Maris’s CD release party, where they will be joined on stage by Gypsy Chief Goliath.  Check out the most recent installment of Richtig’s Reviews where GCG’s It’s A Walk In The Mist is scrutinized, and this show is plugged.  (10 pm, 19+, $5)




Indie garage-rocker and multi-instrumentalist Paul Jacobs will be lending his sound to the event of Chase Davidson’s BMX video premiere at Phog Lounge (157 University Ave W.) early in the evening, with Kenneth Macleod and The Windsor Salt Band taking things over later on.

Sunday December 4


Milk Coffee Bar (68 University Ave W.) is hosting an acoustic showcase featuring Diesel Junkie’s Jonathan Loiselle, Beijing Bike Club’s David John Zelko,  Windsor’s best eastern-influenced act Daniyal Malik, fifteen-year-old Toronto-Area Francesco with his emotional, poppy sound, Kaleb Stropkovics of the band Rivers, and an acoustic set by local pop-punkers Another Intention. (6 pm, all ages, $5)
