The Venue Revue: May 23-29, 2012

Posted by Gabby / May 23, 2012

20120522-venuerevue.jpgThis week in concerts: Polaris Music Prize season is almost upon us. After last month's Polaris Salon featuring Franco songstress Marie-Pier Arthur, it's now Parlovr's turn to wow the crowd at Casa del Popolo. Also happening this week, a handful of launch parties, Picnik Electronik and the third edition of Chromatic at the SAT.

Thursday, May 24:
Jimmy Darling [album launch], Cabaret le Lion d'Or
Local band Jimmy Darling will be releasing their latest album, Last Days in Wonderland. The group's cinematic, quietly intense folk follows Jimmy on his quest, through loss and deception, to find love and hope. A gorgeous musical journey, and a gorgeous album, well worth the trip.

Thursday, May 24:
Parlovr [album launch], Jackie & Judy Rococo Bar
Local indie-rockers Parlovr have been busy working on their new album, Kook Soul, and are gathering some wild Polaris hype (they'll also be at the Polaris Salon on May 26 at Casa del Popolo for your listening pleasure).

Friday, May 25:
Crystal Fighters w/ Is Tropical, Il Motore
The British/Spanish electro band Crystal Fighters launched their debut, Star of Love, back in 2010 in the UK, and back in April 2012 in the US. Their blend of cultural influences, vocal harmonies, and unusual instruments (like traditional Basque txalaparta and txistu) makes for an engaging listen, and they are also known for their energetic performances. Is Tropical, a trio from London, dishes out bass-heavy, beat driven tunes that are guaranteed to get you movin'.

Monday, May 28:
Gogol Bordello w/ Mariachi El Bronx & Two Gallants, Metropolis
Gogol Bordello's frontman, Eugene Hütz, is no stranger to the music lover or film watcher. As an actor, he's been seen alongside former hobbit Elijah Wood in the film adaptation of Everything is Illuminated. As a musician, he's known for quirky, bizarre performances, and the Gypsy punk band he leads is beloved by fans and critics alike. Not to be missed if you're a fan, or generally up for a good time.


Chromatic @ SAT: On May 25 and 26, look out for the third edition of Chromatic, a two-day blitz festival that features over 150 local and international artists, from fashion and food to music. The festival's events will take place at the Société des arts technologiques and will feature local artists such as Suuns, Mozart's Sisters and Le Matos, among many others.

Piknic Electronik @ PJD: More than 8,500 people showed up for last weekend's very first Piknic Electronik. This Sunday, check out Russian House superstar Nina Kraviz and Canadian DJ ManyGanCes.
