Written by Adam Donaldson

Sadly, it’s a slow music week for you as the semester winds down. But all the same, here are this week’s offerings.

 

Thursday April 15th

Old Man Luedecke, Jessy Bell Smith, Pat LePoidevin

9:30 p.m. Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St.

KYEO and the CSA are bringing a music set that’s positively coast to coast (and on Juno weekend too). First, there’s folk maestro Old Man Luedecke from Chester, Nova Scotia, and then there’s alt-folk artist Pat LePoidevin from Princeton, B.C. In the middle, there’s Guelph’s own Jessy Bell Smith doing her roots/gospel thing.

 

Friday April 16th

We Came as Romans, Four Letter Lie

6 p.m. Vinyl, 52 Macdonell St.

Kick off your weekend with something loud at Vinyl. We Came as Romans headlines, while Four Letter Lie opens.  This one’s an extra early show, so plan accordingly.

 

Saturday April 17th

Ambre McLean

9 p.m. The Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham St.N.

Guelph folk chanteuse Ambre McLean takes a break from her usual performance locality at Manhattans and brings her music downtown for an evening at The Cornerstone.

Rueben Degroot

11 p.m. Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell St.

Rueben Degroot and his troupe of musician who apparently write country songs for their jazz band. This probably needs to be seen (and heard) to be believed, and Jimmy Jazz delivers.

 

Sunday April 18th

Campfire Sessions with Mark and Greg

9 p.m. The Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham St. N.

Mark Rodford and Greg Denton return to host their monthly, acoustic, Sunday night jam at the Cornerstone. Bring the instrument of your choice and a song in your heart. This is the last Campfire Session for the season, so make it a good one.

 

Tuesday April 20th

What She Said with Kenyada

9 p.m. Vinyl, 52 Macdonell St.

Whimsically named in honour of one of Michael Scott’s most infamous lines, Guelph’s What She Says make awesome electro-pop music together. Fellow Guelphites Kenyada will bring their own flavour with a reggae pop sound.

 

Wednesday April 21st

The D’Urbervilles, Gregory Pepper & His Problems, Ben Gunning

9:30 p.m. Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St.

The annual Kazoofest kicks off with local band Gregory Pepper & His Problems and Toronto’s Ben Gunning doing back-up for the locally formed and flavoured D’Urbervilles, who return to serenade Guelph once more. Look for more Kazoofest listings in next week’s Royal City Beats.
