Welcome back to Shows This Week! I’m glad you made it. What’s that? You don’t know what shows to see this week? Well, in that case let’s just dive right in…
half•alive – Friday, October 4th
If you’re anything like me and all this gloomy weather has got you feeling some type of way, go see Half Alive’s show this Friday at L’Astral as part of their world tour, and they’ll be sure to bring some colour back into your life, if not at least put just a little pep back into your step.
The Californian indie pop trio’s most recent album, Now, Not Yet, was released this past August and contains previously released hit singles still alive and RUNAWAY.
Half-Alive will play at L’Astral, 305 rue Saint-Catherine O, Friday, October 4th, 2019 at 8PM. Tickets available through evenko.
Lil Mosey – Saturday, October 5th
If you haven’t heard of Lil Mosey, here’s what you need to know: he originally blew up on Soundcloud but he’s not a mumble rapper, he’s only 17 years old, and his music has already gotten millions of plays online.
Don’t miss your chance to catch the rising trap star this Saturday at Corona Theatre.
Lil Mosey will perform at Corona Theatre, Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at 7PM. Tickets are available through the Corona Theatre website.
Manila Killa – Saturday, October 5th
Another young success story, Manila Killa, a 22 year old DJ and producer from the Philippines and Washington D.C. will be performing this Saturday at Newspeak. Killa’s music edges on ethereal with a unique sound that embodies elements of indie pop and electronic music which ultimately come together in a sort of movie-soundtrack-to-your-life vibe.
Will you cry? Will you dance? I guess you’ll have to find out this Saturday.
Manila Killa will perform at Newspeak, Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at 10PM. Tickets are available through the Newspeak Montreal website.
Sarah Pagé – Saturday, October 5th
Montreal-based harpist, Sarah Pagé, will be making an appearance this Saturday alongside Joni Void, Sam Shalabi, and N Nao.
Pagé’s unique and profound understanding of her instrument may lead you on a journey you’ve never been on before, and yet which somehow still possesses the essence of something all too familiar.
Sarah Pagé will perform at Casa del Popolo, 4873 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Saturday, October 5th, 2019, at 9PM. Tickets available right here.
Jinjer – Sunday, October 6th
If you’re a heavy metal fan, (and perhaps even if you believe you’re not) you won’t want to miss Jinjer this Sunday.
The Ukrainian progressive metal band is unsurpassed as such for several reasons that could be summed up by the following: the intricately woven quilt of different genres that are incorporated into their sound, the seamless way they shift between sounds, the fact that they’re a metal band with a female lead-singer (an unfortunate rarity in this world), and also just that Pisces will always make me emotional.
Jinjer will perform at Corona Theatre, Sunday, October 6th, 2019 at 6:30PM. Tickets available through evenko.
Catch y’all on the flip side!
