6:30pm Amelie et les singes bleues

Cutting their musical teeth on Toronto’s club scene, ALSB built a following reinterpreting French classic as seen through a kaleidoscope of other influences. Edith Piaf sitting in with a slow jam rhythm section, Jacque Brel having a bar brawl with Tom Waits… this is the sound that the band has been celebrated for – and won awards for, including the prestigious Coup De Foudre 2012 and Coup de coeur des Médias Trille Or 2017. It is a sound that has thrilled audiences across Canada.
