Montreal-based band, Plants and Animals will play at Lambert's Friday night in support of their last LP, The End of That. The band describes their sound as "post-classic rock," which I find to be a very apt description. The songs have elements of Blues, and pure Rock with lots of anthemic choruses and sing-along moments. There are also very intimate acoustic guitar songs that remind me of Ryan Adams. The songwriting is superb, with personal lyrics and catchy melodies. Tickets are only $10 in advance or $12 on the day of the show and it will be a great opportunity to see a great band in a small space before their star significantly rises.

Playing the support slot for Plants and Animals Friday night will be Papermoons. The band has been on hiatus for a couple of years but they are officially back with a new album coming out soon. Friday night's show will be their first in quite some time. You can hear a few of their most recent tracks over on Soundcloud.
