Sure Things: Your guide to the best long weekend ever

Get your dad bod to these shows this weekend



The Almighty Rhombus w/Special Costello, Orchards
Hailing from the only place in the universe that looks more like the moon than the moon itself (Sudbury, Ontario) The Almighty Rhombus are far from home and probably stoked to see something other than rocks. Welcome the pop rock outfit to the city, but show up early for local acts Special Costello and Orchards. Gus' Pub, $5, 10pm


Hilotrons w/Gianna Lauren
Hot on the heels of the vinyl release of their latest album To Trip With Terpsichore, experimental Quebec fivesome Hilotrons are touring the maritimes with local fave Gianna Lauren. The Company House, $10, 8:30pm

The Brood w/Owen Meaney’s Batting Stance, Best Fiends
Part of the Carleton’s seventh anniversary concert series, this lineup boasts music to your ears, food for thought and probably some more idioms. The Brood are witty and sharp while maintaining their unhinged performance style, and they’re joined in this lineup by other brainy bands Owen Meaney’s Batting Stance and Best Fiends. The Carleton, $5, 9pm


The Lazys w/Black City Avenger
After giving an electrifying performance for the unsuspecting people of Dartmouth last year, Australian hard rockers The Lazys are back, this time touring their self-titled debut album. Presented by the Halifax Urban Folk Festival, join the down-under rockers and local act Black City Avenger if you want to Shake It Like You Mean It. The Seahorse Tavern, $10, 8pm


Party Favor
Los Angeles based DJ Party Favor turns up on a Sunday to celebrate the long weekend. Local support comes from Mixre and JAYHUBZ. Dance off all the barbecued food and beer from the holiday. Reflections Cabaret, $10, 10pm
