Top con­cert picks for this week­end

Edmonton Journal - - CITY + REGION - FISH GRI­WKOWSKY

F&M: This lovely lo­cal duo-plus re­cently treated us to an our town cabaret at Aviary, and have de­cided to switch things up a lit­tle by do­ing an af­ter­noon show of cov­ers. Be­ing as clever as they are, it’s not just all mu­sic from Will Old­ham’s Palace Songs, but specif­i­cally from the band’s rather lit­er­ary 1994 EP Hope, which in­cludes the lovely Agnes, Queen of Sor­row. It’s an in­ter­est­ing con­cept, and the vo­cal power of Re­becca An­der­son and soft­ness of Ryan An­der­son’s voice are sure to work won­ders with the ma­te­rial. For a sam­ple of these two in ac­tion, check out their cover of The Lit­tlest Hobo’s theme song on YouTube, prom­ise you’ll feel some feel­ings. De­tails: 4 p.m. at Em­press Ale House, 9912 82 Ave., free

Shout Out Out Out Out/Can­too: One of Ed­mon­ton’s great ex­ports — be­sides talk­ing about Ed­mon­ton — is the raw en­ergy and power of elec­tro-pop band Shout Out Out Out Out which runs with the amaz­ing con­cept of hav­ing two drum­mers and four bass play­ers, plus all the meaty keys. When that ma­chine gets rolling it is im­pos­si­ble to not be moved to mo­tion, and they sum­mon such a unique joy you can see it on all their faces. Be­sides the band of ringers, the lo­cal scene is also well rep­re­sented by Jom Comyn drum­ming for Can­too, pretty much a to­tal win all around. De­tails: 8 p.m. at Aviary, 9314 111 Ave., $20 at yeglive.ca/$25 at the door

Fleet­wood Mac: Yeah yeah, no Lind­sey Buck­ing­ham. But are you re­ally go­ing to sneeze at Ste­vie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleet­wood — along with Mike Campbell, who co-wrote Tom Petty’s Refugee, and Split Enz/Crowded House’s Neil Finn? Tick­ets are still avail­able for this show be­hind the Gret­zky Statue, and the new nu­ances of this new com­bi­na­tion of mu­si­cians has been get­ting solid re­views.

De­tails: 8 p.m. at Rogers Place, tick­ets start at $89 at Tick­et­mas­ter.
