This Week’s Shows (October 4-11)

Craig Fahner @ Eastern Bloc

Everyone doing well? Good! We’ve got big decisions to make this Friday, plus a jazz festival to contend with, so unless you’re going out of town this weekend (which I am…), it’s time to get thinking about dem shows.

Thursday (ce soir)

Cool things abound in the early eve as Calgary artist Craig Fahner kicks off his first solo exhibition at Eastern Bloc entitled “Import/Export.” What to expect? From the gallery’s site:

His work reimagines the ways that technology, sound and musical instruments are experienced. The four works exhibited in Import / Export speak to our individual perception of sensory stimulation. Together, the works presented reveal the quantifiable aspects of emotional exchange and the commodification of human-machine interaction.

That opens tonight at 6pm

Then continue the multimedia extravaganza with Montreal’s Les Momies de Palerme over at Casa Del Popolo at 8:30pm



Jens Lekman

This is a tricky one folks. It just so happens that there are 5 (!) potential choices you could make this night, so I’ll try and help guide you with a list of criteria.



Jazz festival L’Off has a thing happening at Popolo or you could check Perfume Genius at Il Motore.


The day of rest brings us music actuelle and improvisation at Casa Del Popolo courtesy of Klaxon Gueule, Alexandre St Onge, and Bernard Falaise.


Noise and punk and free jazz is going down at Death Church where the excellently named No Babies, Dagger Eyes, and Loud Bag will conspire to make you flail your limbs wildly.


Groove on The Octopus Project‘s frequency at Il Motore or catch the aforementioned music actuelle crew of Klaxon Gueule, Alexandre St Onge, and Bernard Falaise again at Popolo.


How about rounding things out nicely with a free (like $0) jazz show by way of L’Off Festival at Sala Rossa?


Sounds good to me. Enjoy the holidays and upcoming week!
