You won’t want to miss them!

 

JOSEPH ARTHUR – December 2th at the Petit Campus

Yes, he is the singer you discovered while listening to The OC’s soundtrack on repeat, dreaming of meeting a irl version of Seth Cohen. A decade later, his husky voice still finds ways of making you dream of escaping on the road, even if his latest albums weren’t such big hits. For Arthur’s most recent opus The Family, he is acting once again as a one man band. Every track on the album has been performed by himself, from the guitar to the drums and more.

 

 

 

MAC MILLER – December 9th at the Metropolis

Mac Miller’s latest album, The Divine Feminine, is inspired by love and about learning from women throughout his life. This soulful collection of songs exposes the many layers of love and puts it into perspective. It features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, Ty Dolla Sign and Ariana Grande, among others. The album was supported by three singles: “Dang!” featuring Anderson Paak, “We” featuring CeeLo Green, and “My Favorite Part” featuring Ariana Grande.

 

 

DEERHUNTER – January 15th at Le National

Seven might definitely be a lucky number for this band from Atlanta. With Fading Frontier – their seventh album in career- they deliver what might be their best and surprisingly most accessible opus to this day. While still aboarding in dept subjects like mortality, Cox and his band explore the more vulnerable and relatable side of their music, with powerful lyrics like: I was born already nailed to the cross/I was born with a feeling, I was lost.

 

 

AESOP ROCK – January 28th at L’Astral

 

The Impossible Kid, Rock’s latest release showcases, once again, his wickedly extensive vocabulary. His first in nearly four years and his most exposed project yet, the rapper opens up about depression, regrets and aging. The MC will be in Montreal in support of his diaristic 7th studio album, which came out in April and features Chuck D, Hanni El Khatib, and Kimya Dawson.

 

 

 

BANNERS – February 9th at La Sala Rossa

 

Banners is an artist I discovered thanks to the browsing section of Apple Music. His captivation and uplifting sound and his smooth voice is what drew me in. It is clear that Banners is here to stay and will do some massive things in 2017. He’s definitely one to watch and his EP is worth listening to. Listen to his latest song, below:

 

 

RUN THE JEWELS – February 21st at Métropolis

 

We first discovered them when Brooklyn rapper-producer El-P and Atlanta’s Killer Mike’s debut dropped in June 2013, immediately standing out with their statements and sharp lyrics. While we’re waiting on the duo’s next album, Run the Jewels 3, which will be released next year, catch them on February 21st when they’ll be in town for their Run The World Tour.

 

 

 

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS – February 24 at L’Astral

 

Lee Fields is just one of those artists that creates a sound so classic that it will be enjoyed for decades to come. The genuine R&B singer and his band will be in town to deliver a soulful performance at L’Astral.
