Hopeful Monster – Halifax – August 19th 2015


Who: Hopeful Monster
When: Wednesday, August 19th @8pm
Where: The Company House, 2202 Gottingen Street
Ticket: $12/$15

Toronto based pop artist Hopeful Monster plays the Company House this week. Originally from Nova Scotia, Hopeful Monster brings a sweet and melodic style to pop music that is a nice break from the pulsing bass and synth drums of todays pop. This is Scotian pop! Can you dig it? Good, go see em Wednesday.

Wordburglar – Halifax – August 14th 2015


Who: Wordburglar
When: Friday, August 14th @9:30pm
Where: Gus’ Pub & Grill, 2605 Agricola Street
Tickets: $10

Alphabet soup enthusiast Wordburglar drops his new album Friday night at Gus’. Its been a minute since the extraordinarily clever wordsmith graced us with new tunes, and you can not only finally hear them live this week, but the admission to the show also gets you a copy of the album. Wordburglar is known for what I’ll call intricate nerd rap. If you’re an 80’s or 90’s kid, every word that spills from his mouth will sound like gospel to you. Dude released an entire album homage to GI Joe’s baddies Cobra for crying out loud! Its a show too good to pass up, so be sure to get out and support the locals.

Quiet Parade – Halifax – July 17th 2015


Who: Quiet Parade
When: Friday, July 17th @8pm
Where: RIO Pilates & Yoga Studio, 5781 Charles Street
Tickets: $10

Halifax pop rock group Quiet Parade play Halifax this week. Since their inception, the 4-piece has released 3 successful EPs and become a mainstay of the local music scene. Voters for The Coast’s “Best Of Halifax” poll have annually voted them “Best Band to Listen to Quietly” the past 4 years, so they must be doing something right! With their catchy tunes and relaxed vocals, listening to Quiet Parade is an effortless and relaxing endeavour. That’s not to say they aren’t a great way to kickstart your weekend though!

Busty and The Bass – Halifax – July 8th, 2015


Who: Busty and The Bass
When: Wednesday, July 8th @9:30pm
Where: The Seahorse Tavern, 2037 Gottingen Street
Tickets: (probably $10)

Busty and The Bass return for another round of wicked jazz and blues fun at the Seahorse. The Montreal 9-piece university band stopped in this past winter for their first ever Halifax gig and it was an absolute blast. Playing before the Mellotones certainly offered an audience boost but I feel like the city was enlightened to their unique brand of jazz/hip hop, so this show should see an even larger turnout and a more educated crowd. The band is also coming off some huge festival shows and the release of their new (free) album. Yeah, that’s 2 free albums from these cats. Get. On. This. Show.

Jessie Brown – Halifax – June 25th, 2015


Who: Jessie Brown
When: Thursday, June 25th @9pm
Where: The Carleton Music Bar & Grill
Tickets: $8

Moody Halifax rocker Jessie Brown and her 3-piece band play the Carleton this week. Jessie Brown feels like the rock n roll of my parents time with a deep voiced female singer and stinging guitar solos. Her voice resonates through songs like a roll of thunder, and the minimalist instrumentation helps with the clarity of all elements. Brown and her boys have a string of shows coming up at the Carleton this summer so if you can’t make this one, there’s a few more throughout July.
