you have two great chances to see one of electronic music’s rising stars tomorrow night. jacques greene–of the epic “motivation” flip, a key cog in the montreal beat scene, and luckyme and night slugs affiliate–will be pulling double duty opening for soon-to-be huge the xx as they rock the showbox and then breezing up the hill to wreck barboza for the official xx after party.
tickets for the xx show are long sold out (some jags on craigslist will gladly sell you one for $125 though), so your best chance is to hit up barboza, where tickets are still available for the low, low price of $8. djs about town j-justice and treasure, and blog homie sounds in silence will be opening up.
check out “ready,” the title track from jacques greene’s most recent ep as well the greene-produced “true blue” from fellow canadian ango’s recently released serpentine mixtape to get familiar.
