      With a debut album, GOOD LUCK, out March 24 on Sub Pop, DEBBY FRIDAY has been generating a lot of buzz. The artist, who recently re-located from Vancouver to Toronto, has received acclaim from the New York Times to Stereogum for the way she blends gothic industrial textures with hyper-pop and soul. Her full-length is set to be accompanied by a short film of the same name, which is “largely drawn from FRIDAY’s own life and experiences growing up as a zillenial anti-heroine.”

      When: April 15

      Where: The Cobalt

      Tickets: Available via Eventbrite


      Social Distortion

      Led by frontman Mike Ness, the California punks have been going strong for over 40 years. While perhaps best known for ‘90s hits like “Ball and Chain” and “Story of My Life,” Social Distortion is considered to be pioneers of the So-Cal punk movement and is notable for blending alternative rock with blues and outlaw country. The band has teased new music to come in 2024.
