the music dept picks at the city’s live offerings…
Scout Niblett plays Casa Del Popolo Monday, September 16
Monday September 16 – Scout Niblett, Dope Body, Big Brave @ Casa Del Popolo OR Chelsea Light Moving, Speedy Ortiz @ Cabaret Du Mile End
Hard choice, this one. Badass melancholic women of legendary Scout Niblett and local Big Brave with rip-and-roar Dope Body from Baltimore. Across the street Thurston Moore and new MA rock 90s-slackrock outfit Speedy Ortiz who are literally exploding white-hot from the mouth of the buzz-cannon.
Tuesday September 17 – Shining Wizard, Squalor, Lung Butter @ Barfly
Spastic noise jazz ginding-of-teeth Shining Wizard with anxiously-anticipated mems-of infamous local genderless rock spectaculars Femmemaggots and Very Heavy Squalor who I’m sorry I don’t know much about (yet).
Thursday September 19 – Ari Swan, Mathieu Charbonneau & Pietro Amato, Ohara @ Casa Del Popolo
An evening fit for the weather. Some beautiful voices in there.
Friday September 20 – Gate (The Dead C’s Michael Morley), Tom Carter, Cian Nugent @ Casa Del Popolo OR Marc Molner (Kingdom Shore), H. De Heutz, Lung Butter @ La Plante
There is a picture of the Dead C next to “Cult Following” in the dictionary. Marc Molner blew my brain off with a cello at Cafe L’Artere in the spring. Heavy, meditative, drone. Lung Butter: see above.
Sunday September 22 – Rae Spoon @ La Sala Rossa
Rae Spoon is a Canadian Icon for some, and a hero for many. New album release.
