    Death Country in the Royal City: Elliot Brood plays Vinyl tonight.

Written by Adam Donaldson

Slow week this time for Royal City Beats. Maybe you want to stay in and study? Ah, who am I kidding? Hope you find something you like.


Thursday March 25th


Elliott Brood

8 p.m. Vinyl, 52 Macdonell St.

Fresh from a stint in Austin, Texas, The Brood choose Guelph for their first show back in Canada. Come out and kick it, death country style, with one of the country’s hottest indie bands.

Rouge with Mike Duguay & Bear Trees and Canadian Wildlife

10 p.m. Bookshelf ebar, 41 Quebec St.

Kazoo is fundraising and they’re teaming up with Toronto’s Rogue for a CD release party extravaganza. Peterborough’s Mike Duguay & Bear Trees will be on hand, paired appropriately enough with Canadian Wildlife.

Whale Tooth and From East to Exit

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

Toronto quintet Whale Tooth will bring some good time indie rock to Guelph to kick off the weekend, while the Royal City’s own From East to Exit will compliment the ticket with their own rockin’ style.


Friday March 26th

Ulysses and the Siren with Thunderhawks, Arietta, Canyon City, Full Blown Assault

8 p.m. Shadow, 72 Macdonell St.

Eleven Presents (the promoter) presents a night of punk flavoured music at the Shadow. Do you dare to go underground with Ulysses and the Siren, Thunderhawks, Arietta, Canyon City and Full Blown Assault? I think you do.


Saturday March 27th


Singalong with Sam & Jane

8 p.m. Ashurés, 259 Grange Rd.

Join Sam and Jane for this gig at Ashurés if you’re in the market for something more interactive in your Saturday Night. Take part in this popular sing-a-long covering traditional tunes from the Old World and fan favourites from the New. It’s your last chance before the end of April.

The Done Me Wrongs

9 p.m. Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham St.

Country/roots quintet The Done Me Wrongs rounds out a week of shows across the region by packing into the small space of the Cornerstone. This should be worth seeing for the logistics alone.

Luke Nares & The Strays with Dave Latimer

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

Show some love to this Guelph-based folk and bluegrass band led by Luke Nares. He’s being getting a lot of buzz so you might want to see what all the fuss is about. Dave Latimer will be backing up Nares and his Strays.


Sunday March 28th


Lucas Stagg

9 p.m. Cornerstone, 1 Wyndham St.

Toronto roots artist Lucas Stagg is going stag and playing an acoustic show Sunday night at the Cornerstone coffee shop. It should be a cozy and intimate show for a cool late-March evening.
