Tonight at Gus' Pub (9:30pm, $7), Halifax rock band Old & Weird will play with fellow locals Muncho Joe, Mauno and special guest iji, "absolutely perfect pop all the way from Seattle, Washington." I'm not missing this one since it might be a few minutes before Old & Weird play Halifax again. After last summer's release of What I Saw, they had a pretty sweet summer this year playing NXNE, Pop Montreal, Sappy Fest (unofficially, hehe) and they released a seven-inch split with Toronto's New Fries on Pleasence Records. To get you more familiar with one of the best bands in Halifax, we played "10 Questions with Old & Weird," but really it's more like "40 Answers with Old & Weird," but you know. Just roll with it. Okay cool.
