The weather sucks and it’s bloody cold out and all your friends are buggering off for a vacation somewhere warm. Harrumph. Time to turn your thoughts to the inevitable thaw when you can come out of your parka for some live music. Sound Seekers brings you a shortlist of coming shows to look out for in the weeks ahead.
LOVE QUESTION MARKET
The Ottawa multi-member pop force known as The PepTides will release an album of electro fury and fantasy on May 3 at St. Alban’s Church. The band is describing Love Question Mark as “dark and danceable.” The album contains a bonus side of Retro Love songs (as opposed to Electro Love songs) that have a throwback quality to them. Save the date.
