The Midnight Poutine Podcast -Feb. 27-Mar. 3 2008

Posted by Jer / February 27, 2008

Hopefully, like many of the students in this fair city, you're on some kind of a spring break right now (complete with keggers, speedo-clad bodies, or whatever else kids these days are up to). If not, we're sorry that you have to endure a long and snowy February and yet another b-league version of the Midnight Poutine Podcast (your town-hopping host is still away). But, there's no better way to cure the winter blues than to park yourself in front of this city's great live music, so get out and see some shows.

In absence of my regular inane banter, here's a bit of info on the shows featured in this week's episode.

Tonight, Wednesday, Ottawa's Amos the Transparent visit La Sala Rosa to share tunes from their impressive debut album Everything I've Forgotten to Forget (with The Modern Cure and Mariposa supporting). Across the street at Casa, Atlas Sound (solo project of Deerhunter's Bradford Cox) joins White rainbow and Valet for some sonic strangeness.

Thursday's big event is the Save-a-Life: Malaria Prevention Benefit Concert Event: Benefit concert at Club Lambi. Organized by Amnesty International Concordia, the event features a whack of local artists, tam tam-ers, poets, and independent musicians including Amos Joannides, Charlotte Cornfield and the Talls, Heruba, and Andy Murphy. Things get underway at 7pm and all proceeds go to the Canadian-based charitable organization BUY-A-NET Malaria Prevention Group, to buy treated nets and anti-malarial drug treatments in Uganda.

If you'd rather not contribute to a good cause (fine, be that way), Jonathan Rice and Matt Costa play Le National.

Things get trippy on Friday with Vancouver's psychadelic Black Mountain rocking La Sala Rosa. Freak-folker Bon Iver, who like all freak-folkists probably hates the term freak-folk, opens with songs from his stunning first album For Emma, Forever.

You'll probably be busy with dozens of other Nuit Blanche activities on Saturday, but if not, Percy Farm hold their own all-nighter at Eva B.

The legendary Ace Frehely tries out the solo thing on Monday at Metropolis. Whether or not this is a good or bad idea, and whether he will wear make up, is still undecided.

If you aren't at the sold out Hives show on Tuesday, two promising newbies on the local scene, Sweet Mother Logic and OK Giraffe, bring their eclectic styles and refreshing sounds to Quai Des Brumes. And finally, at Les Saints, Sia, of Six Feet Under soundtrack fame, tries to prove her tunes are worth listening to without HBO's most interesting family behind them.
