The Monarch Tavern is a long time fixture on Clinton street in Little Italy. With recently revamped food and drink offerings, the Monarch now serves up 15 craft beers on tap including conditioned cask and over 35 bourbons. The large space is spread out over two floors and includes pub games like pool, pinball and darts.
We couldn't be more excited about this show :) ♥
LUKA (Toronto, ON) is back at the Monarch to croon us all into romantic oblivion.
Lisa/Liza (Portland, Maine) released her starkly beautiful LP Deserts Of Youth last year to praise from Pitchfork, The Le Sigh, and countless others.
Paterson (Toronto via London, ON) is breaking away from the full-band setup of So Young and doing something new. But just for a point of reference...
Greef (Portland, Maine) has been described as ranging from "experimental noise-tapes to soft quiet folk, depending on the mood", and "doomy, in a nice wintery way"
Doors at 7:30 p.m.

"Western Canadian punk label Deranged Records released early recordings by the likes of White Lung, Tenement, and Pleasure Leftists, and now they’re back with the debut from Toronto post-punks Century Palm. Meet You is out this March, and it’s preceded today by “King Of John St.,” a gloomy celestial standout that sounds like New Order fronted by a bellowing misanthrope."
Grey Lands debut album Right Arm is a throwback to the early days of American indie rock. Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, Right Arm's eight tracks are washed with spiked feedback that recalls Slanted and Enchanted or even Daydream Nation along with low frequency, start/stop, Swans-esque punches of bottom-end. The album was written, produced, recorded and mixed by the band's Wayne Petti with engineering assistance from Ryan Haslett (Sloan) and Graham Walsh (Alvvays, Metz). From the immediacy of first single 'False Alarm' to the Pacific North West-vibe of 'Another Lie' and the slow burning 'Life Itself', Grey Lands' Right Arm is set to make its mark on 2015.
Fresh Snow is not music. Music died so that Fresh Snow could live. As music ascended toward the light, Fresh Snow fell down to earth. They passed each other in a corridor of indescribable beauty. They were given a message and strict instructions on how to deliver it to you. They had no pen or paper with which to write it down. Luckily it was simple: “I love you. Don’t be afraid. All is forgiven.”
