I wrote yesterday how we don't get a lot of French language bands rolling through town, but there's actually a really good one playing tonight. Montreal's Jesuslesfilles will play the Swat Bar tonight (5/31) (59 Canal @ Allen) with Static Jacks and Team Spirit.
The band, who were last here for CMJ, make a super-catchy racket that's in the same garage as the Pixies or early Dandy Warhols. Trashy, fun, but not too reliant on in-the-red levels or reverb. Their 2010 debut remains a free download from their bandcamp page. You can stream it below alongside the flyer for tonight's show and a list of all tour dates.
