Montreal Weekend Playlist 08/30-09/05 [Podcast]

Posted by MP / August 30, 2006

This week's supersized poutine pix podcast is not only the longest in history, it's the most recent. It's also sure to get you in the mood for some live music this weekend.

Tonight, Wednesday, you should spend some time shoegazing at Le Divan Orange with the Montreal's fabulous Below the Sea and The Field Register

Thursday we make life difficult for you by forcing you to choose. Athletic Automaton and Hamborghinni open for crazy rockers The White Mice at Friendship Cove (early show 8pm, $8/$10). Bring your own cheese.

If you are in for something a little less crazy but just as off-kilter, check out Shoot The Moon at Casa del Popolo (or else pay 60 bones to see them at Osheaga).

If The White Mice weren't insane enough for you, on Friday night To Live and Shave in LA bring their heavy rock to La Sala Rossa ($10/$12) . Over at Main Hall, Faces On Film and The Golden Dogs open for an as yet unknown headline act. (9pm, $8 / free for Osheaga Ticket holders)

This weekend, of course, is all about The Osheaga Fetsival. Pretty much anyone who has ever played music ever is coming to Parc Jean Drapeau. The 2 day outdoor extravaganza features Sonic Youth, Ben Harper, The Flaming Lips, Wolf Parade, Dinosaur Jr., Think About Life and so on and so on. If you can't afford the steep cover price ($60/day, $95 for the weekend) keep checking midnight poutine for wall-to-wall, candy-coated, fat-free, bilingual Osheaga coverage from Nika, Evelyne and Liam. This week's podcast also features plenty of songs from bands playing the festival.

If you have any energy left after spending the weekend trying to figure out what the hell Osheaga actually means, you can relax with some explosions-in-the-sky type ambient instrumental rock courtesy of Dopamine and Dreamt Pyramid (La Sala Rossa, 9pm, $8/$10)

Finally, An Albatross kick next week into gear with an experimental noise-rock show at La Sala Rossa along with American Devices and The Expectorated Sequence

Here's an audio glimpse at some of these bands. Enjoy. And remember to apply sunscreen often and liberally (no....not when listening to the podcast, but when attending Osheaga).

White Mice, To Live and Shave in L.A., An Albatross and Comets on Fire are all playing here within five days from now and you're hyping the Golden Dogs and Osheaga fest? Might as well have T'Cha Dunlevy writing this.

Learn to read. Note that three of the four bands you mention are among our picks. The fourth (Comets on Fire) will be featured the following week, because Sept. 5 is a Wednesday. An Albatross? Pfff. Weren't they just on the OC? Might as well have had Mose Persico writing your comment.

Yeah. We wrote about those bands more than we played them. But since you raise a point about content (the first point about content) it makes me wonder...do people want heavier stuff in the podcast?

And the last time I checked the Osheaga lineup, there were a SHITELOAD of amazing acts. You snooze, you lose. See y'all there!
