Musicwise, The Braids are playing O’Hanlon’s Pub tonight with Seattle-basedĀ  Astronautalis backing them up. Here’sĀ link to the preview James Brotheridge did for our June 3 issue (just scroll down). And here’s video of the Montreal-based band performing at a small house-type concert. (YouTube) Also Regina hip hop artist Def 3 is at the Exchange. He recently returned from a couple of months in Europe and will doubtlessly be looking forward to performing before a hometown audience again.
