LAL CD release party
Wrongbar (1279 Queen West), tonight (Thursday, May 22)
Be the first on your block to hear LAL present the boundary-busting sound of their dope new Deportation disc in a club where you can feel the rumbling bass. See feature, page 38.
Kool Haus (132 Queens Quay East), Saturday (May 24)

Dark Meat, Quiet Hooves
Lee’s Palace (529 Bloor West), Monday (May 26)
No, they’re not a religious cult, but Dark Meat’s horn-?heavy skronkery makes this 17-?strong assault unit worthy of your worship. See feature, page 42.
