Gigs For The Week of May 27th In Barrie: Your Local Live Music Source

THE BEST OF BARRIE CONCERTS THIS WEEK

Music Gives Soul To The Universe” – Plato

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

In a (slight) change of pace, the Lounge will host an event geared towards artists of the painting variety rather than the musical variety this Thursday.

‘Rock Dog’ is the first in a series of Rock Bar Art Curations. Featuring over 50 framed images from 30 Barrie based artists , the showcase will celebrate the two things The Foxx Lounge are famous for – Rock’n’roll and Hotdogs.

Of course… there will still be music. Including a once in a lifetime reunion of one of Barrie’s most beloved bluegrass groups; the Dirty G Strings. Fellow Barrie artists Angry Spells and The Mickey Moone Murder will flank the Strings. Capping it off is Toronto hip hopper/comedian/all around talent Don Valley (who we are sure will have a plethora of Drake/Raptor jokes to drop)

It’s a PWYC event with all ages welcome from 7-9pm

MORE FOXX LOUNGE

Friday things get back to normal at the Lounge. Or…as normal as things ever get here. StS Promotions bring in a trio of talented acts; Nothing Serious, Sedge and Junko Daydream. All three are on the upswing in the Ontario concert circuit, and it promises to be a loud and exuberant evening. Doors at 8pm

Saturday is a can’t miss for GTA music enthusiasts. The awesomely named Filthy Radicals bring their dirty mics to town for a ska infused performance. These guys have been drudging through the local scene for decades and are sure to kick it out intense-like. Avem, Hangtime and Wayne Kennedy are on deck to support. The brown carpet rolls out at 9pm.

ELSEWHERE ON THE BARRIE CONCERT SCENE…

MAVRICK’S MUSIC HALL

Speaking of semi-legendary Canadian bands, Saturday will also see the return of Lowest of the Low. Easily one of the most influential alternative bands of the 90s, they were a regular on the concert circuit and Toronto radio for a long, long time. Should be a fantastic gig.
