Gigs in Barrie – Week of Nov. 23rd
The Best of Barrie Live Music 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 craving an alt rock blowout, an intimate jazz ensemble or a laid back acoustic set, Wednesday through Saturday in Barrie are jammed with jams from local talent and edgy bands from across the region.
Happening this week on the stage in Barrie…
Wednesday – Rude City Riot/House of Haunt/The Classy Wrecks/TNB
A couple of based power Ska bands, Vancouver’s Rude City Riot and Toronto’s The Classy Wrecks, bring the noise to the midweek jam at the Dirty Q. Fans of the 90s underground Ska scene will want to be there to check out the Wrecks, and the Riot as they swing through Ontario and Quebec.
Psychobilly-ers House of Haunt (Toronto) have been on the scene since 2012 and join TNB to fill out the ticket.
Thursday – WineLips/Aawks/The Saydes/Howlin Circus
No rest for the wicked, or the wickedly committed music fans. Following up Wednesday’s jam, the Dirty Q brings in WineLips to kick off their winter swing through Ontario and New York. The Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party (because what else would it be called?) stops off on Barrie on Thursday night.
WineLips new single Eyes hit the streams in October, accompanied by a Sammy J. Lewis-directed music video.
Local talent Aawks and the Saydes are on the stage for support. Howlin Circus (Toronto) on the heels of a new EP called Dresden, is filling out the ticket.
