All-you-can-eat Saturdays

Local bands launch records, close chapters, occupy new venues and play for the benefit of a hurricane-ravaged record label. Plus: the DJ debut of a former Mirror colleague and MTL punk legend and 2013’s first truly stacked Saturday night.

Prog: no longer a four-letter word

Before I hip you all to the week’s best shows, let me go through my stack of new wax and pull out a few records that are just too good not to mention.

First up is the sophomore record from Winnipeg prog kings Mahogany Frog: Senna. If you were lucky enough to catch this four-headed hydra at the last two editions of Pop Montreal or their stellar show at the long-gone Bar St-Laurent II, you probably already know that the Frog is Canada’s best-kept secret.
