This just in: Miami-based psych-metal band Torche apparently had some trouble crossing into Canadia for a scheduled gig in Montreal — something about stolen gear and passports. So they'll be making a surprise appearance at the Monkey House tonight with shoegazers The Sight Below and Burlington outfits Painted Manes and Burrows.
Just as a frame of reference for why this is kind of a big deal, this weekend Torche will be at The Electric Factory in Philly for a two-night stand with Coheed and Cambria. So yeah, for the band to swing through the comparatively tiny Monkey House on a random Tuesday is pretty rad.
(Thanks to Michael Nordstrom and his 13 year-old son for the head's up!)
