Live Music 8pm
Fakes / Lungbutter / Sally Hill

Come down to Struts & Faucet this Friday night for some "snotty, psychic dancehall" from Montreal's Fakes, who insist it fell into punk: "We were not really familiar with our instruments when we started," says guitarist Frankie Burge, "so it seemed like the most accessible genre to us. We just wanted to have fun and do something cathartic."" (The Coast)

Lungbutter, also from Montreal, will be playing "twee-metal from the far tomorrow; maybe if you like to nap to it, maybe if you don't like to nap to it."

Local performance artist and BFA grad Sally Hill will start the night off with something.

All ages! $6

April 23 to May 25, 2014
