THE BEST OF BARRIE CONCERTS THIS WEEK

Music Is The Wine That Fills The Cup of Silence” – Robert Fripp

As any veteran of Barrie’s live music scene will tell you, there aren’t many nights off here.

If you’re game for going out, the city by the Lake is guaranteed to have a gig for you every week. Whether you’re feeling an alt rock blowout, an intimate jazz ensemble or a laid back acoustic set, Thursday through Saturday in Barrie are jammed with jams from local talent and edgy bands from across the region.

And if you’re an emerging group playing gigs in town, we want to hear from you! Send the finer points to [email protected] and we’ll post your shows here and on our events page.

Happening this week on the stage in Barrie…

THE FOXX LOUNGE

Although most of us start our week on a Monday, Barrie’s rock bar really doesn’t get cooking until midweek.

Thursday PureGrainPromos presents a local gem, with the Rip Nancies tearing up the stage. They’re celebrating ten years as a band (is that the diamond anniversary?) Supported by The Heart Attack Kids and Diner Drugs, who are in Barrie for the first time.

MORE FOXX LOUNGE

Possibly the loudest night of the week, Friday sees the psycho-billy heavyweights Gutter Demons blast on to the stage. Grizzled veterans of the touring life, these guys know how to gig and are gearing up for a late summer tour of the U.S. Supported by Helldorados and the terrific GTA based weirdo alien babes Hysterics.

Saturday it’s even more psycho-billy (because one is never enough) with Toronto’s The House of Haunt in town, along with Montreal’s ska masters Kman and the 45s. Local punkers Heavy Petter are on the ticket as they support the release of their first full length album.
