Royal Canoe, Demetra, Jenny Berkel @ Lo Pub
So it’s still technically spring, but school’s out, and so I usually just relabel this glorious chunk of freedom as summertime: a season dedicated to frolicking, good music, and bands going on tour! All of which is going down at the Lo Pub TONIGHT!!! Your local faves Royal Canoe, Demetra, and Jenny Berkel are going on tour, and their show will be full of the sounds of love. Royal Canoe will get you grooving with their dark, distorted pop, Demetra Penner’s voice will carry you to dreamy heights, and Jenny Berkel will haunt you into the tiny hours with her pretty voice and guitar.
Sound like a fun night? Tickets are available at the door for $10. Doors are at 9; the show is at 10. -Adrienne Yeung

Coming up this Saturday, April 28th is an Art City Fundraising Social called Project Pineapple, featuring: The Paradize Band and DJ Hunnicut. Art City is a non- profit organization working through the West Broadway area. They set up art programs for children and adults, and are trying to establish high quality and free art programs. The Paradize Band play Caribbean and reggae music and are known for playing their songs with their single steel pan drum, or using an entire band. DJ Hunnicut is known for specializing in funk, soul, and 90’s hip-hop.
This show is $15 for a Pineapple Ticket, or $20 for a Coconut ticket (which can be redeemed for $7 towards any Art City Boutique Purchase) and tickets are available at Into the Music, Art City, and Music Trader. The theme is tropical, so whip out your grass skirt and head down to the Pyramid at 176 Fort St. for 8:00 pm! Shanell Dupras

Transistor 66 – 10 Year Anniversary Party @ The Park Theatre

Oh, Miesha Miesha Miesha. Meeshmeesh. Meeshmeeshmeesh. Her name is just so fun to say, how could you not like her? But in all seriousness, this girl is a badass and her music is tough as nails.. Her show at the Death Trap (R.I.P.) last year was super loud and rockin’, and I’d encourage all yall to go out and expect a good time. Also playing that show is local awesomes Microdot, This Hisses and the Lonely Vulcans.  

In celebration of their 10-year anniversary, Transistor 66 is hosting this show as a part of their weekend of T66 bands. This one’s happening on Saturday, tix are $10 in advance, doors at 8, show starts with Microdot at 9. Time and money well spent, I’d say.-
