Awaiting serenity

Another thrill-filled weekend awaits Ottawans. Tonight Jim Bryson plays a rare Ottawa show at First Baptist Church with Steve Lambke of the Constantines (a.k.a. Baby Eagle). Blackball, (shown below) return to Irene's with Boom Creek.

Over on the other side of the Canal, The Most Serene Republic (shown below) and The Diableros turn Zaphod Beeblebrox into a hurricane of Canuck indie rock. Alternately you can catch Broken On Site, Set Fire to Wicker Park, From Day One and Lay Low, Aim High at Cafe Dekcuf or Clockstrikes Music at The Rainbow.

On Saturday Zaphod's hosts The Polytones, (show below) with well-dotted pancake lovers Shanker and Romps and Eastborough.

The same night The Unknown Wrestler, Rhume, ManPower and Micarza Camaro rock Irene's Pub for the Bytown Billionaires. Montreal power poppers Sonic Avenues will be ripping it up at the A&A Speedshop at 279 Flora (a house show) with Sweet Janes vets Holy Cobras and The White Wires. On Sunday The Universal Habit, Silvercade and Liquid Edge perform at Zaphod's.
