Montreal Weekend Playlist Apr. 11 -17 [Podcast]

Posted by Jer / April 11, 2007

This week, hosts Jeremy Morris and John MacFarlane serve up a massive dose of Montreal shows. It's like an all you can eat buffet, except with two jackass commentators pointing out everything you are eating.

This week's podcast is again sponsored by the Canadian Film Center Media Lab.

If it's still Wednesday when you're reading this, get out of the house and check out experimental indie rockers Xiu Xiu at Club Lambi with locals the Luyas (featuring members of Bell Orchestre and Torngat) opening ($12). If you like your rock a bit more straight up, try The Black Angels with Vietnam and Germans at Main Hall ($10).

Thursday has Creature at Quai Des Brumes playing as part of a benefit show for le livre d'art "Sens Mes Doigts".

On Friday, post-rock options are plentiful with Mono, World's End Girlfriend and The Drift at Sala Rossa ($10) or Do Make Say Think, Exhaust and Thundrah at Le National($15). Internet buzz-fuelled Clap Your Hands Say Yeah play Metropolis with Elvis Perkins In Dearland. But Friday's most danceable gig will surely be the Lesbians On Ecstasy CD Launch party with The Ballet & Djs Kandis C, Leila P And Jordan Dare at Club Lambi ($12).

Saturday is just as busy with ambient doom metal maker Nadja playing Casa Del Popolo with Kolumkilli and Menace Ruine ($8) or Radio Shock, Gold Sword, Trancelvania, and Element Kuuda making noise at Friendship Cove. There's also the eclectic electronica of The Books at Les Saints (location changed from the Ukrainian Federation) with Mantler ($18).

On Sunday singer songwriter Joseph Arthur gets himself a band (The Lonely Astronauts) and hits La Tulipe with Portland's Stars Of Track And Field.

The fun doesn't stop just because it's Monday. RJD2 is at La Tulipe with Busdriver and Chichester ($22.50) while Nas hips his hop at Metropolis.

Thanks to MP's latest contest, you can check out Tuesday's Kaiser Chiefs and The Walkmen show at the Spectrum for free and save yourself $30. Or you can check out some more reasonably priced rock at Zoobizarre with Panthers and Devil Eyes.
