As the end of semester approaches, things seem to be picking up for local music fans. A guide to this week’s beats.

 

Thursday November 26th

Shad K

10 p.m. Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St

The tremendous hip hop artist Shad K wraps up his current tour with a stopover in Guelph. Tickets can be purchased at the CSA Office (UC Room 274) and the Bookshelf. Proceeds benefit the Guelph Food Bank and the Canadian Cancer Society. A presentation of your Central Student Association & KYEO productions.

Drudgery, Norris, Terrorhorse

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

The excitement kicks off with a dose of hardcore-trash-death metal… whatever you want to call it. Guelph’s Drudgery takes the stage at Jazz with London’s Terrorhorse and Norris, who drive in from Thunder Bay.

 

Friday November 27th

Down With Webster with Dogbus, Chasing Amee, My Son the Hurricane

8 p.m. Cowboy Bar, 166 Wyndham St. North

A hip hop and punk show at the Cowboy Bar – whodda thunk it? In one of the biggest shows this season, Waterloo’s Dog Bus and St. Catherine’s My Son the Hurricane deliver funk beyond the everyday hip hop. Toronto band Chasing Amee breaks things up with some punk rock, but the real headline is the return of Down with Webster. The band is definitely going places, but still finds time to play more intimate venues – they’ll be performing an acoustic set at DTox in Stone Road Mall at 4:30 p.m.

Young Rival, Birthday Boys, Make Your Exit

9:30 p.m. Albion Hotel, 49 Norfolk St.

It’s an eclectic night of music this Friday at the Albion. Hamilton’s Young Rival will help you get crunk (or so they claim.) Then you can rock out with the Birthday Boys and get a little experimental with Make Your Exit.

The Lovely Feathers & Thunder and Lightning

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

The soothing sounds of Montreal’s The Lovely Feathers should be enough to help you get over a tumultuous work week. Come out and listen to some new cuts off their latest album Fantasy of the Lot. Guelph veterans Thunder and Lightening will round out the night.

 

Saturday November 28th

Stephen Fearing with Andrew McPherson

8 p.m. Dublin Street United Church, 68 Suffolk St. W.

East coast folk hero Stephen Fearing is a multiple Juno award winner who has collaborated with the likes of Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLachlan. Fearing is a league of his own, but then again so is Andrew McPherson, who opens for Fearing with some tunes from his solo project Lefty Singer.

Fleece Elves with Square Root of Margaret

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

In the spirit of the season, the Fleece Elves bring their unique brand of indie rock to town. Opening up for them are Chatham’s psychedelic pop stars Square Root of Margaret. No math test required.

 

Sunday November 29th

Lucas Stagg

9 p.m. Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham Street North

Toronto roots artist Lucas Stagg goes stag, playing a solo gig Sunday night at the Cornerstone coffee shop. It should be a cozy and intimate show for a November evening.

 

Tuesday December 1st

Kingdoms, Blind Witness, The Intake of Glass, Monolith, Set Anchors

7 p.m. Shadow, 72 Macdonell St

If you’re in the mood for hard rock, Shadow has you covered. Celebrating the release of their new album Daughter of Atlas, Waterloo’s Kingdoms teams up with Montreal metal masters Blind Witness, Cambridge sons The Intake of Glass and orchestral group Monolith. The night wraps up with another K-W outfit, the progressive metal five-piece Set Anchors.

John McDermott

7:30 p.m. River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich St

A holiday fixture since time immemorial, Canadian tenor John McDermott makes his annual appearance in Guelph at the River Run. If you’re in a Holiday mood there are few better ways to celebrate the season, and tickets for students start as low as $20. Russell deCarle of Prairie Oyster will be McDermott’s special guest.
