GIG GUIDE: January 9 – 15

Welcome to another week; it’s already the second week of 2012! A couple of great shows coming up, and very encouragingly, we have both a number of international artists, and a big number of FREE shows happening this week.

The gig guide is headed up by recently-reformed cult American rock outfit, Lydia. They’ll be playing The Patch on Friday the 13th (oooh, spooky) with a big lineup of supports including The Cavalcade and local dudes, Vulpes Vulpes. We’ve also got Brooklyn electro project Happy New Year playing alongside Moonbase Commander at Yours & Owls on Thursday; Canadian acoustic artist Faye Blais at Dicey Riley’s, also on Thursday; and UK singer-songwriter Passenger and Tim Hart of Boy & Bear at Owls on Sunday night.

A bunch of free shows happening too, with Abstract Classic, Faye Blais (again), Nicole Brophy, The Flat White Cats, Mind At Large and Tommy M & The Mastersounds all playing around town through the week.
