Weekend concert picks: April 23-25

 

TONIGHT

ECHO & THE BUNNYMENPhoenix Concert Hall • Liverpool band formed in 1978. I’m sure that’s before many of you were born. They had many UK Top 10 hits. Great 80s revival band

YUKON BLONDE feat. Sports: the Band & Fox JawsThe Garrison • They played over 300 gigs in 3 years, under their old name, AlphaBaby and have supported such bands as Ladyhawk, The Constantines and Women. Think modern-day Fleetwood Mac, or Crosby, Stills & Nash.

OK GO w/ Earl Greyhound & The BoozeThe Mod Club • They released their 3rd studio album this January with killer single “This Too Shall Pass”. Great support bands too…I was recently introduced to Earl Greyhound, and instantly loved it.

SATURDAY

HAWKSLEY WORKMANMassey Hall • I’ve been a huge fan of Hawksley for years thanks to a dear friend. Even if you don’t know the music, GO. It’s impossible not to like. And he is damn sexy ladies.

WE ARE WOLVESThe Garrison • Montreal indie-rock band who released their 3rd album this past October. They played their first show at Concordia and have been frequently playlisted on CBC Radio 3. Thumbs up for franco-indie.

DIGITAL/MAJOR LAZERSound Academy • Sure to be a wild show, get ready to sweat, dance and be blown away. And wear good walking shoes…it’s never easy to catch a cab from the Docks.

SUNDAY

JAKOB DYLAN & THREE LEGS feat. Neko Case & Kelly HoganThe Phoenix Concert Hall • Son of the great Bob Dylan, Jakob has branched off from his previous band, The Wallflowers to go solo. Not surprisingly, his voice is magnetic. He performs with special guests Kelly Hogan and Neko Case, who does the solo thing and is also part of The New Pornographers.
