Beth, Waitress and Drab Wrath
Creepy and sensual with just a hint of rock aggression, Winnipeg’s Beth aims to bedazzle and buffalo with a mix of post-punk, goth and probably some other stuff we can’t even think about. Add a couple of openers to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a night out. Friday at the Black Cat.
The Shit Talkers, Daisy Stranglers
What could be better than a night out watching two ripping punk bands from B.C.? Oh yeah, it’s the long weekend, and you can probably stay out late and sleep in the next morning. Check this one out Sunday at the Saskatoon Indoor Skatepark.
Yo Bear, Swayze and The Sex Geckos
Some bands are playing, which is cool and all, but factor in the fact that you can get pizza and play pinball at the same time and now we talking! This Thursday at the Black Cat Tavern.
Curious about what life was like in pre and post-revolutionary Iran through the eyes of a rebellious, punk-loving teenager? Come check out Persepolis, an animated movie based on Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel, this Saturday at the Remai Modern.
