Shows This Week: The Sheepdogs + The Sadies + Vance Joy + Wet

Quite busy musical times, indeed. Here’s just some of the musical performances you can catch in Montreal over the next few days…

Friday, January 29th
The Sheepdogs @ Corona Theatre

This Canadian quartet is the musical descendant of legendary Canadian act The Guess Who- their classic rock sound encompasses rich guitar leads and smooth harmonies. In 2011, the group won a competition to be featured on the front cover of Rolling Stone. Even more impressive, The Sheepdogs were the first unsigned band in history to make it to the cover of the legendary magazine. Since then, the accolades have continued to roll in, and their fan-base has continued to grow. Personally, I can’t wait to see them Friday night.

Doors @ 7pm. Tickets are $27

Saturday, January 30th
The Sadies + Lil Andy @ Le Ritz

These Toronto locals have been pumping out blues and country-infused rock for almost two decades, and their intense live performances show no sign of losing steam anytime soon. Known in particular for their New Year’s Eve performance every year at the legendary Toronto bar The Horseshoe Tavern, The Sadies are sure to put on a good show.

Doors @ 9pm. Tickets are $20

Sunday, January 31st
Vance Joy @ Metropolis

Known best for his breakout hit Riptide, singer-songwriter Vance Joy is sure to have his audience swooning on Sunday evening. Most of you have probably already heard of him, and if you haven’t, give his part-chill, part-anthemic folk rock songs a quick listen.

Doors @ 6:30. Tickets are $42

Tuesday, February 2nd
Wet + Kelsey Lu @ Le Ritz

Wet, a Brooklyn-based electronic/pop trio crafts silky smooth, and at times haunting, melodies that are reminiscent of acts like Grimes and Chvrches.

Doors @ 8:30. Tickets are $15

Also, don’t forget, Igloofest continues and we’ve already mentioned The Folds EP release.
