Cheap Girls play Casa Del Popolo this Wednesday

This Week’s Shows (October 11-18)

Cheap Girls play Casa Del Popolo this Wednesday

A beautiful and brisk day it was in Montreal. The night brings a host of shows, some of which you might like to attend. Read on!


Howl! Arts Collective is doing a “theater, song and dub poetry” show at Sala Rossa as part of the feminist festival of media arts + digital culture being put on right now by Studio XX. Check the event page for more deets.

Free-jazz-pop-cover trio Bean will be playing right across the street as part of L’Off Festival should that strike your fancy.


While Flying Lotus DJs at SAT, you get to choose between the garage pop of Kurvi Tasch (at Casa Del Popolo) or the polkabilly grindcore of Bad Uncle (at Divan Orange).


King Tuff

Consider going alone and stoned (or, you know, with friends) to hear Vermont guitar hero King Tuff lift your spirits with top-notch garage pop at Il Motore.


You need some folk in your life. Fill that quota at Upstairs with Del Barber‘s stripped down storytelling, or hone in on those stories and bring your ears to Popolo’s spoken word night.


Staff Benda Bilili

Start your week off the only right way: with the music of paraplegic Congolese street musicians Staff Benda Bilili. Even if you can’t make it to the Rialto, reading their Wikipedia will leave you radiating positive vibes.


Recently downsized, but still one of the best rock bands working, Menomena will play Sala Rossa. Meanwhile, things get improvisatory at Mile End hang Le Caigibi  for the weekly Mardi Spaghetti.


A night of rawk with Jon Spencer Blues Explosion playing Theatre Corona and Michigan punks Cheap Girls doing their thing at Casa Del Popolo.

Have fun!
