7pm (-3am) – Not Unlike Showcase @ Handlebar

7 bands and warped realtime VHS Visuals by Rob Feulner. Click the link for more info.

9pm – Psyche Tongues @ BLK BOX (Great Hall Underground)

Music that’s both psychedellic and friendly. -SG

10pm – July Talk @ Mod Club

If the aesthetic of black & white photographer were a sound, July Talk about be that sound. Rough and sweet, Johnny and June play Americana the Toronto way. -YS

 10pm – French Girls @ Cherry Cola’s

Who doesn’t love French Girls? -SG

10pm – Whiskey Hearts @ Hard Luck Bar

A bunch of punks playing acoustic jams.

11pm – We Were Heads @ Creature’s Creating

Do you like to “rock out”? -SG

 12am – St. Lucia @ Wrongbar

St. Lucia – Named after an island in the Caribbean, Brooklyn-based Johannesburg-raised Jean-Philip Grobler, is the next choir-boy turned heavenly dream-pop-electrio a la Active Child. -YS

12am – Tommy Kruise @ Nocturne

Tommy Kruise – That area where chopped and screwed meets Bonnie Tyler. Montreal beatmaker/trap artist Tommy Kruise has more talents than Instagramming pics of Ryan Hemsworth doing weird stuff.

1am – Odonis Odonis @ The Garrison

Toronto boys on Hooded Fang’s DAPS records are going to fuzz you into a sweat party. -SG

3am – Wannabe (Spice Girls Tribute Band) @ BLK BOX (Great Hall Underground)

Well, they’re a Spice Girls Tribute band playing at 3 in the morning. I’m not sure there’s anything left to say. -SG
