Cold Specks plays November 26 at the Park Theatre (Autumn de Wilde)
It's Monday music madness in Winnipeg tonight! And if you happen to be looking for something to do, SCENE has several options for you to consider.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are back in Winnipeg promoting, I'm With You, the tenth studio album of their roughly 28 year career.
This visit marks their first local show with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer who was officially hired to replace John Frusciante in 2010. The band was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in April.
Legend has it that while in New Orleans to shoot the video for "Brendan's Death Song," Chili Pepper bassist Flea checked out the Rebirth Brass Band for the first time. After seeing their regular Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf Bar, the Band was invited out on the road with the Peppers.
But tonight they're not only opening for the Chili Peppers, they're also playing their own gig after the show at The Windsor Hotel. And apparently the band did go shopping for winter clothes before crossing the border.
If you're looking to check out an up and coming artist tonight instead, check out Cold Specks at the Park Theatre. Cold Specks is a Canadian singer/songwriter named Al Spx.
Based in England, she released her debut album in 2012 and I Predict a Graceful Expulsion was quickly shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize that year. Local act Demetra opens the show.
