Go to the old Top 300 charts


Alt Rock


This is Bare Claws, sportin a new Chicago Cubs-esque logo. They are a 4 piece rock band from Newmarket. They have one self titled record released so far. Diggin the track "A Beautiful Woman". To be honest it's kinda weird in a good way. Some cool keyboard action and the vocals I would describe as a mix between the singer from Hot Hot Heat and a regular lazy person. "Contemporary Issues" has cool vibes to it as well. The guitar carries this mellow track that also shows these fellas can drop in some nice harmonies when needed. Heads up for the laser beam. Bare Claws hIT the Tennessee in Toronto on Thursday. Sweater Pants and Big Name Actors are also on the bill. - Kris Gies

Can you think of a better combo than live music and pro wrestling? Me neither. Superkick'd is a Toronto based company that holds monthly events which combine pro wrestling and live music. The atmosphere is electric and the party is wild. This Friday Superkick'd returns to the Great Hall for the "Crank'd Party" featuring swamp rock band Flamingo Bày. They recently released their latest record "Steak n' Eggs" on tape through Wiener Records which will be for sale along with some brand new t-shirts. There's no seats on the floor so that means you can get as close to the action as you want. Get drunk, get loud, bang on the ring mat and enjoy the best entertainment in the city. Doors at 7. Kick Off Party with Flamingo Bày at 7:30. 8 o'clock bell time at the Great Hall on Queen West.

NOYES supports "Relapse" EP with West Coast Tour

Lawndale scuzz trio NOYES have already begun their tour up the best coast, after a Friday performance at the UCLA Co-op that ended with a police shutdown. Don't worry: Kermit, Daniel and Ian ripped through their set. The neighbors and one of the officers agreed, "NOYES is being too noisey." They even waited until We think that was a compliment. The band's next stop is at the Greenhouse venue in Arcata, CA with Chachi Hands and Dosidicus on the fifth. "Relapse" is now available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music streaming services. - Ryan Mo

Rockers Torino Black's Debut EP Release Party March 5 at The Parish

Festival season is in the air! We have SXSW right around the bend, Euphoria shortly after, a psychedelic rockers paradise, Levitation Fest, and numerous others all stuffed into a couple months. So prepare yourself, let your damn hair down, let your freak flag fly, and tune in to some of our top notch local bands.

One group to put on your list that will undoubtedly put on wondrous show if you’re able to make it out to see them is the rock group Torino Black. Formally known as Stella. The North, this powerful and grungy rock band is making some noise, and bangin’ some heads here in the Austin music scene. Torino Black is a badass rock n’ roll band based right here out of Austin Texas that was originally founded by lead singer Sisi Berry, and lead guitarist Saul Arteta in 2013. Since then they have added Matt Onkst on Bass guitar and Adrian Blanco with the heartbeat on the drums, and have really honed in a sound as unique as their name.

So, After a 3 month tour in Europe and generating a lot of attention, they might as well keep shit rollin’ and drop an EP! Coming up on Saturday March 5, 2016, Torino Black will have a release show at The Parish Austin right on 6th street for the debut of their EP Food for a Therapist. Buy tickets ahead of time to secure a spot at Eventbrite, or take your chances at the door, but I do not recommend you miss this show.

The delicious grungy guitar riffs coming from guitarist Saul Arteta are guaranteed to electrify your fuckin’ body and make you bang your head and dance till you’re dizzy and drunk. You will want to do it all over again when you hear that lovely orotund voice come from Sisi Berry, their lead singer, whose powerful vocals are assured to knock you right on your ass and longing for more. For those of you that can’t wait and want a lil’ teaser, check out the song ‘Fire’ off the new EP and stream it as many times as you would like; this ballsy, heavy hitting song is a perfect preview of what’s to come, and hopefully a nice driving song to push you through the week. Get listening, and rocking, below.
