Hewson Grey / Fri, Apr 8 (8 pm)

The Lemon Bucket Orkestra

The Lemon Bucket Orkestra / Sat, Apr 9 (8 pm)
Think of Lemon Bucket Orkesta as Canada’s very-own Gogol Bordello, as it plays music in the same vein, blending Latin, punk and folk. (Ukrainian Youth Unity Complex, $30)

Tallest to Shortest / Sat, Apr 9 (8 pm)
Tallest To Shortest is an amalgamation of band members from the Uncas, Red Ram, Switchmen and the Fails, which translates to music that mixes grungy rock with hip-hop beats. Sick, dudeeeeees. (Filthy McNasty’s, $5)

Tee Tahs / Sat, Apr 9 (9 pm)
Edmontonians just wanna have fun, so let the punk-rock melodies of local act Tee-Tahs provide you with that high-energy fun-fun-fun. Physical Copies and Melted Mirror will be there to get the party started. (9910, $10)

Modern Space / Sun, Apr 10 (6 pm)
They might have a lot of hair on their heads, but don’t mistake them for a hair-metal band. Instead, the Toronto-based group makes alt-pop rock melodies combined with beatnik poetry. (Mercury Room, $10 in advance, $12 at door)
