Metric tonight, and the rest of the weekend…

Category: Blog — @ 12:23 pm October 21, 2005

The weekend starts with an all-Canada showcase at Sokol Underground, headlined by Toronto band Metric and opening acts The Most Serene Republic, a Milton, Ontario, six-piece who sound heavily influenced by Death Cab/Postal Service, and The Lovely Feathers, who sound like a strange cross between Two Gallants and Pavement. 9 p.m., $10. If that doesn’t trip your trigger, check out The Terminals with Austin’s The Midgetmen and Lincoln’s Ideal Cleaners at O’Leaver’s. $5, 9:30 p.m. Also tonight, the Sixth Annual “Sisters Doin it for Others!” all-girl revue at Mick’s featuring Goodbye, Sunday and Sarah Benck, among others. It starts at 7:30, and all donations go to the Lydia House, a shelter for battered and abused women and children.

Tomorrow night’s hot show is the sold-out Decemberist concert at Sokol Underground with opening band Cass McCombs. So mad should that house be that I will probably instead go running to O’Leaver’s, where Swords is opening for Dios Malos (I’m going for Swords). $5, 9:30 p.m

The weekend winds down on Sunday, again at O’Leaver’s, with Fromanhole, Landing on the Moon and Minneapolis band Self-evident. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Look for live reviews here all weekend…
