Looks like it’s a slow week for Royal City Beats, but it’s far from dead. Here are a few shows worth checking out in the next seven days.

 

Thursday January 28th

 

wordPEOPLE with Miles Jones and Extended Adolescence

9:30pm. Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St

The funky hip-hop stylings of wordPEOPLE return to Guelph, and this time it’s to premiere their new video “Just Don’t Know (The Dooplah Song).” Soul man Miles Jones from Toronto will be joining them for the occasion along with locally talent Extended Adolescence.

Michael Mucci, Nadja and Electrolumenescent

9:30pm. Ed Video Gallery, 40 Baker St

If you feel the need to chill out from an overly stressful week, then you best make your way to the Ed Video Gallery for some lovely ambient and acoustic music. Guelph’s own Michael Mucci leads the evening with some of the latter, while Toronto’s Nadja and Hamilton’s Electrolumenescent bring some of the former.

Dancehall Free For All, Sandman Viper Command and the Sweet Mack

11pm. Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell St

Off the Floor Fest, a two-night musical extravaganza, kicks off tonight at the Jimmy Jazz with a pop-rock mix lead by a Guelph favourite. The pop/funk mix of Dancehall Free For All will be joined by the more garage-sounding Burlington crew Sandman Viper Command and the jazzier Sweet Mack.

 

Friday January 29th

Dance Electric, Danger Bay & Waterbodies

11pm. Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell St

Get ready to rock out with the second night of Off The Floor Fest at the Jazz. Tonight’s line-up is anchored by Mississauga’s dance/punk mix called (appropriately) Dance Electric, and features the pure punk sounds of Toronto’s Danger Bay and t)he St. Catherine’s-based Waterbodies.

 

Saturday January 30th

 

Maximum RNR and Sound One

11pm. Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell St

Make your Saturday night louder with Toronto metal/punk stars Maximum RNR, and then stick around for the jazz/ska ensemble nine-piece Sound One.

 

Wednesday February 3rd

 

The Decay, Dave Hause, Mockingbird Wish Me Luck and Ian Blackwood

9pm. Van Gogh's Ear, 10 Wyndham St N

A special treat for your Wednesday - one of those Guelph shows that’s a proverbial potluck of music. Resident Royal City rockers The Decay entertain the punk rock crowd. Dave Hause brings his unique brand of acoustic folk-pop all the way from Ambler, Penn. Mockingbird Wish Me Luck are the local flavour. The night ends with an acoustic set by The Artist’s Life lead singer, Ian Blackwood.
