On the off chance that you rely on Midnight Poutine to plan your Saturday nights, and the following pronouns don't make you squeamish, might I suggest checking out the Basia Bulat show at Il Motore tomorrow night. Il Motore is the newest music venue from the Casa del Popolo/Sala Rosa folks, this time set in the gentrification-defying locale of Rue Jean-Talon West. It's almost like they're daring the yuppies to move up there. Basia Bulat is an an upcoming indie/folk singer, who at her best sounds like Natalie Merchant fronting Beirut, and at her worst just sounds like Natalie Merchant- this is definitely not music for those with a reflexive hatred of Lilith Fair. But this should be a good show for anyone looking to check out Il Motore, and an opportunity to tell people that you "saw her when..." as Basia Bulat's songs inevitably attain the heights of earthly success and grace commercials for Apple products.

Is a reflexive hatred hate like a reflex? Or hate that thinks about itself?

This will determine whether I go and see the show or not.

I actually was worried about this possible misinterpretation, but I thought i was just being paranoid. Now that I know your Saturday night depends on it, I will never use ambiguous adjectives again.

Reflexively: characterized by habitual and unthinking behavior
