Telefauna

Saturday Feb 16 @ Theatre Centre, 9pm

There’s no reason to be jealous of Montreal. Sure, the attention wagon kinda skipped over us for them when Arcade Fire when kaboom, but then the place started to get flooded with Pitchfork-alikes. But Telefauna will remind you just how crazy and inspired that pretty little town can be. Telefauna is four piece electro cabaret pop, at times operatic and grand, at other times bedroom-y and quaint. You’ll feel like dancing one minute and hugging a stranger the next. — Ryan Mclaren

 

Dance Electric

Saturday Feb 16 @ Theatre Centre, 10pm

When that particle accelerator is finished in France and Switzerland and the scientists test it out for the first time, they’re going to smash two particles together and realize that all it does is sound exactly like Dance Electric. These new wave punks explode on stage, and make you wonder how real moshing ever went out of style and what the fuck was up with all that touchy-feely group-wrestling at rock shows a couple years ago. If you find yourself standing still during their performance, you must be dead. — Kevin Parnell

 

DD/MM/YYYY

Saturday Feb 16 @ Theatre Centre, 11pm

DD/MM/YYYY seem poised to blow the doors off in 2008, joyfully blanging out relaxed avant-garde aggressive blissed-out sometimes confusing but always gratifying unfashionable loveable slightly psyched-out and heavily smoothly-awkward mathrockked-out thrangles of jangles against the bleige blandness of blurban blight with their feet on the ground and their heads in the smog alert. Were named Spin.com’s artist of the day on the day of the winter solstice 2007. Their new CD Are They Masks? was embraced by the mainstream press and features the greatest tribute ever to Mr. T breakfast cereal. — Doc Pickles

 

Lullabye Arkestra

Saturday Feb 16 @ Theatre Centre, 12am

Lullabye Arkestra are purveyors of AM740 love songs set to stun. They are living testimony to the power of love in the face of yawning mediocrity, and can only be described using terminology lifted directly from Whitney Houston love songs, they are a behemoth of a band, the northern version of a southern revival and even bring along their own preachers to testify. They have become the unofficial WL Anniversary House Band, testifying to the power of indie rock love on cold February nights. Fronted by Katya Taylor, who slings a mean bass and sings from her toes, and set against the foundation of Do Make Say Think’s Justin Small on the drums they will whip you into a positive frenzy. — Doc Pickles
