Calgary Touring Roundup: March 2017

Wednesday 01st, March 2017 / 08:48
By Colin Gallant

CALGARY —

HUMANS — Nite Owl, March 9

It’s always a party when Humans come to town. Their sets at the Hifi, Commonwealth and Sled Island block parties are the stuff of legend. This time, they’ll be headlining the latest CLUB NACHT at Nite Owl with Overland and sitstill (who blew us out of the water at our most recent issue release party). If muscular electronics and pop accessibility are you thing, don’t miss it.

MOTHER MOTHER — Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, March 20

Mother Mother have enjoyed a meteoric rise since their off-kilter indie pop beginnings in Vancouver. Today a Universal signee, the band has carved out a niche as in pop’s stratosphere while keeping a signature oddity that shows a commitment to identity. Sporting a futuristic, alien-like look and hard-hitting hits on new album No Culture, this tour looks to be a highpoint from the band.

KATE TEMPEST — Commonwealth, March 31

At the cross-section of performance, music and poetry, Kate Tempest relentlessly injects her art with a street-wise perspective on the issues of today. Her delivery is rooted in spoken word but verges on modes like rap, monologue, rant and plea. Accompanying her lyricism are jagged abstractions of electronic music, rock and hip-hop. She’s been noted by the Mercury (longlisted) and Ted Hughes (winner) awards for her ability to interest young people in poetry through contemporary languages they already understand. Her performances are direct, confrontational and unlike anything else you’ll see this month.

WEEZER — Grey Eagle Event Centre, April 5th

What’s left to say about a band so part of pop culture’s modern fabric? However you feel about the trajectory of their career and the signature veneer of frontman Rivers Cuomo, it’s hard to dispute that there’s a certain magic in their many early-mid career hits and enduring spirit. Though their success is stadium-sized, Weezer have always felt relatable in their awkwardness. Revisit a younger you while they play “Buddy Holly” and take a look around at the next generation of alt-rockers just starting to get inspired by the band.
