This Week’s Live

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.
