Suitor are a fresh new supergroup, fusing members from Monoceros, Rumblr and An Inconvenient Groove into “purveyors of fine handcrafted sludge-gaze”. Check them out this Saturday from 3 pm at Smith’s Alternative, as they play with electro-wizards Babyfreeze and Endrey.

Anthony “Albo” Albanese is known in some parts for his hipster taste in music, and what better way to experience it than heading over to Balthazaar on Wednesday night as he puts on the headphones and plays the role of DJ for the night?
