Concert round-up for February 2010

February has just started but an array of solid shows are fast approaching. Other than the nightly small shows in some of the city’s quaint and cozy venues, the following are some of the big names in various genres who will be stopping in this month.

Just because Guns N' Roses have come and gone, does not mean classic rock fans have seen the peak of their concert schedule pass them buy. Lady-killers Mötley Crüe will be heading in to the Bell Centre Friday, Feb. 5, with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry opening the show.

For fans who appreciate a look-back at some of the greats, Eclipse: The Pink Floyd Story will be at Metropolis on the 6th.

An amazing winter of shows for indie rock fans continues in to February. Attack in Black bring their acoustic jams off of new album Years (by One Thousand Fingertips) to the Green Room on the 5th. Montreal’s own masters of noise rock Aids Wolf are in town on the 13th, breaking some ear drums at Casa Del Popolo.

Songstress La Roux will be showing off her vocal abilitiess for a Metropolis crowd on the fifth. Coeur de Pirate, a local francophone artist whose been making big waves across the country will be playing back to back nights at Le National on the 5th and the 6th.

If you love a little brass with your rock, Ska legends Planet Smashers are back in town after opening for Blink 182 back in August. They'll be at Club Soda on the 13th. Or, for a little bit of a heavier sound, Polaris Prize winners F**ked Up will bring the punk to La Sala Rossa on the 21st.
