3. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra w/ Total Life

Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $14
When: Saturday, February 4th—9pm
Why: If you’re not feeling up for either of the above, I highly suggest checking out this experimental rock band out of Montreal. Formed by Godspeed! You Black Emperor musicians Efrim Menuck, Sophie Trudeau, and Thierry Amar the band is seen as a separate entity rather than an offshoot of GYBE.
