OCTOBER 18 // 2010

Avi Buffalo  
@ The Horseshoe Tavern
$13.50 adv., doors @ 9 (openers at 9:15)

Slim pickings tonight, folks. I saw Avi Buffalo this past September and they're pretty solid, if not remarkable. Right on the pulse of what "indie rock" looks/sounds like right now. They're signed to Sub Pop, which might be some indication of quality, but nothing too remarkable in my humble opinion. Check out the video, see what you think. Catchy stuff, sure, but inessential, I'd say.

Other options:

Enter Shikari @ The Annex Wreckroom - $18.00 adv. - ALL AGES
(Oh god, don't go to that...)

Rocky Votolato @ The Drake Hotel - $14.50 adv.

Not really a concert, but completely worth your time:

We're the Weakerthans, We're From Winnipeg (With a John K. Samnson solo set!) @ The Royal Cinema - $15.00 adv

Now this is bound to be cool: premier of the Weakerthan's new documentary/concert movie, with a set from lead singer John K. Samson. Great independent theatre, great Canadian music, great way to spend a Monday evening.
