Thursday, May 17, 2012 – Unbelievable Bargains, Mary Jane Stole My Girl, The Electrics @ Frame Arts Warehouse

On a tight budget this weekend? Not a problem; we’ve got quite the deal for you. Tonight. Three bands. Five bucks. That’s about… $1.67 per band? Can’t go wrong with that. Starting off the night is Mary Jane Stole My Girl, a psychedelic pop group started by Manic Shakes and Ex Modern Teen member, David Skene. Following them is The Unbelievable Bargains, described as “rockopunkochocopop” on their Facebook page, which really is the best way to describe them. Headlining is The Electrics, a rockabilly rock n’ roll group fronted by Greg Arcade, and including Sean Andert of Les Sexy.

Check out The Electrics, The Unbelievable Bargains, and Mary Jane Stole My Girl at Frame Arts Warehouse (318 Ross Avenue) tonight (May 17th, 2012). The show is $5 at the door, and starts at 8:30 pm. – Shanell Dupras

Friday, May 18, 2012 – Ex Modern Teen, Manic Shakes and Softcore at Ozzy’s

This fundraiser show for upcoming local film Danger Sex the Movie is set to be a sweet Friday night for all parties involved. Three great local bands are playing:  Ex Modern Teen, the Manic Shakes (whose posters, plastered all over downtown, had me confused and intrigued for a few months before I finally ran a Google search), and feminist punk band Softcore (with former Stylus editor Taylor Burgess!). Apparently, if you’d like to be involved in the movie, this is where and when you can get more info. Alternatively, if you’re just looking for something to do, this will probably be a Dangerously Sexy show.

Doors are at 9, and your $7 cover goes straight towards production.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 – Mitten Claps & Wintermitts @ Lo Pub

O0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o, this looks fun! Let’s make the weekend a couple days longer to include this show in our line-up! It’s mittens, mittens, and more mittens. Wintermitts are playing at the Lo with Mitten Claps. A folky Franglais band who have songs about sharks, birds and ghosts, they are described as “rollicking as a mid-sea canoe ride” and “as warm as Grandma’s home-knit sweater”. As I figure it, I like canoes (or would probably like them if I were ever to go canoeing) and am a sucker for comfy clothing. Donc, I am convinced ici will be a fun nuit (Franglais!) That being said, I know less about Mitten Claps, but their EP is quite sweet.

Cover is $7 and doors open at 9! Wear some mittens (chucklechuckle).VK
