Welcome to 2010 music fans and the first Royal City Beats of the year!

 

Thursday January 14th

The Glory Holes

9:30pm, Molly Bloom’s 91 Wyndham St

Kick off the New Year right by joining the tri-cities’ best cover band, The Glory Holes, for their regular Thursday night gig at Molly’s. It’s open mic night too, so bring your singing voice.

Clues with Etaoin Shrdlu, Les Mammographes

10 pm, Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St

 

KYEO and your CSA bring you three very unique bands to kick-off the first Thursday of the semester. Clues is made up of one-half of Montreal’s Unicorns and is quickly and quietly making a name for themselves. Toronto’s Etaoin Shrdlu and Quebecers Les Mammographes round out the night in style with a classic and indie rock style respectively. Tickets are available at the CSA office and the Bookshelf.

Modernboys Moderngirls with Nightwood

11pm, Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell

Toronto’s Modernboys Moderngirls team up with Montreal’s Nightwood to do a month-long tour of Ontario and Quebec, and it all kicks off tonight at the Jazz. Come on out and help support these bands brought together by the recession (or so they say).

 

Friday January 15th

 

The Warped 45's with The Ragged Bankers

11pm, Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell

Barely a week into 2010 and The Warped 45's once again grace Guelph with their presence. Backed up by local band The Ragged Bankers, it’s a cool rock set for a cold winter’s night.

 

Saturday January 16th

Singalong with Sam & Jane!

8pm, Ashuré’s, 259 Grange Rd

Sam Turton and Jane Lewis perform well-known folk, pop/rock, bluegrass, country, and gospel numbers, as well as traditional Irish/English/Scottish pub songs and your requests. A sing-along with Sam and Jane offers “musical wellness for the soul,” says one testimonial from their website. If you miss them this week, they’ll be playing the Woolwich Arms the following Saturday.

 

Sunday January 17th

The Campfire Sessions

9pm, The Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham St N

A real campfire in the Cornerstone would be a huge fire hazard. Instead, tea candles set the mood for another charming sing-along in the Royal City. People are invited to bring guitars, banjos, mandolins, accordions, fiddles, harmonicas, ukuleles, dobros, voices, and/or ears to “sing a song, sing along, or just listen and revel.” Guelph music institution Greg Denton hosts.

 

Wednesday January 20th

 

Evening Hymns (CD release) with Forest City Lovers

9:30pm, Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St

It’s pop love from Toronto as the Forest City Lovers tour southern Ontario with the Evening Hymns as the latter band supports their new CD Spirit Guides. An easy listening show for a laid back Wednesday night.
