Drive Tour coming to Red 7 on Saturday.
In The Horn's newest music column we offer recommendations on live music happening around town each week.
This week offers a varying set of artists, ranging from the ethereal songstress of Little Brave to the experimental rockers of Guardian Alien and everything in between.
On Thursday there’s a variety of music going on around town, ranging from indie rock to house. All fronted by female vocalists, Little Brave, Les Rav, and Joanna Barbera will start off the weekend at the Mohawk. Filled with sinuous melodies, and sultry vocal lines, all the bands will be hypnotizing the audiences with their languid soundscape. Eric Prydz will take the stage with his euphoric and big room electronic bangers at Emo’s East, with Andrew Parsons and Shwann.
On Friday the young rockers of Strawberry Jam and River Ghost will be playing their infectious riffs with plenty of distortion at Stubb's. Also, Evan’s Blue and State Your Cause will be playing at the Beauty Ballroom on Friday. Compared to the likes of Chevelle and Breaking Benjamin, Evan’s Blue is known for their intricate guitar melodies that climax into raucous choruses. Headed by Bob Schneider, local favorite's the Scabs will be playing at Antone’s.
On Saturday, College, Anoraak, and Electric Youth will be teaming up for the Drive Tour at Red 7. So if you still can’t get over the ear candy songs for the film Drive, make sure to catch these three acts where they will perform a varying set of originals and tracks from the film’s soundtrack. Aesop Rock, known for his complex and abstract hip-hop vignettes, will also be taking the stage at the Mohawk on Saturday night with Edison and Dark Time Sunshine. At the same venue on Sunday, The Canadian Rifle will showcase their power punk energy that is bound to ensue in a raucous chaos.
To calm down from an adrenaline-filled weekend, stop by at Antone’s on Monday to enjoy a cold beer and Blue Monday’s slick blues with the fervor of cool jazz. On Tuesday, Guardian Alien and Marriage will be stopping by the Mohawk. Known for their frenetic drum-heavy sound with crooning howls similar to that of Karen O, Guardian Alien, is bound to beguile their audience and start a mosh pit or two.
