Barrie Concerts This Week: Nov.11th
THE FOXX LOUNGE
Thursday – Getting your gigs palette whetted is a trio of loud and lit with NOT THAT I CARE, STARSIGNS, 1+1=
FRIDAY – The weekend engages with a banger at the Lounge, as a quintuple of killers take the stage. Leading the way are The Anti-Queens (Newmarket/GTA) and Huntsville’s Cursed Arrows.
Arrows have been kicking around the scene for more than a decade (as a married guitar and drum duo! #relationshipgoals) and recently added an expanded rhythm section. Their most recent release (2018) is called Rebirth.
The Anti-Queens are coming in hot after a big year of international gigs and releases. They dropped their latest disc, Self Titled, in September. Snakes, who wins this week’s totally made up Best tagline of the week award with their Insta Description ( a collaboration of beer and vegetables in song format) Bad Dates (Hamilton) and Barrie’s Angry Spells round out the ticket. Doors @ 9pm!
Saturday – Rounding out the week is ticket rammed with Lounge newbies and an art show!
In addition to the gigs, Saturday will be host to an EPIC PRINT SALE. Come early and get in on the auctioning off all the current work on display in those sexy FOXXY FRAMES. There are over 40 works by 20 local artists up for grabs.
Musically, Brantford’s Ruby Revenge headlines the lineup, flanked by Barrie’s Hocksetter. Green Light District and System Status Red.
