Montreal bred We Are Monroe will be rocking out at Barfly this Saturday night. Though the all-male quartet has been making a buzz on Jay Walker’s Montreal Rocks and has played multiple festivals these past few months, the boys are getting back to what they love: playing for a small crowd at a no-fuss, sweaty dive bar. Take it from us, this might be one of the last time you’ll be able to check out the band in such an intimate venue. So brave through the post Halloween hangover and head on out to the St-Laurent venue.
With music that sounds like the lovechild of Joy Division and (a young) The Killers, We Are Monroe’s shows tend to be infused with danceable rhythms with a rocking edge that will get even the unlikeliest of dancers to bust a few moves.
Familiarize yourself with the band by downloading their self-titled EP “Give Me Some” via their website www.wearemonroe.com.
You can also check out their latest video, Modern Day Gentleman.
See you all there! 9 pm. $5.
