The City Streets Go Degrassi

see them tonight at jacob's




The hard-working roughnecks in The City Streets are starting to reap the rewards of endless touring and songwriting. Their fourth album Peacemaker was recorded with famed Montreal producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You Black Emperor!) and they play a release party tonight at Jacob’s with the Scoop Outs, Hind Legs, Noise Hounds and the Bad Bad Bad. They’re already looking ahead to the follow-up, which is based on the life of vocalist Rick Reid’s grandfather. The album will be recorded in a cabin along the Northumberland Strait, where his grandfather grew up. Finally, you can keep an ear open for a City Streets song on an upcoming episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation. As a fan of the series, Reid is pumped. “I'm a sucker for Canadian melodrama,” he says. “Our music has a good dose of that too.”
