Gig Pick: Dubmatique at Minotaure—01.12.18

By Greggory Clark on January 12, 2019

Montréal’s most popular 90s hip hop group—they are the only French-Canadian hip hop crew with a Platinum record—the legendary Dubmatique is performing at Bar Minotaure, a two-storey live music club (with an arcade upstairs) in Vieux-Hull.

Lately, it’s become quite common for Minotaure to present big-name Québec artists—and the venue is selling out most of these shows. Coming up: Galaxie (Feb. 15), Milk & Bone (Mar. 2), Dead Obies (Mar. 16), Men I Trust (Mar. 20).

Dubmatique’s first show of 2019 is making up for a cancellation of Beau’s Oktoberfest’s opening night. Members of the original lineup, Disoul and OTMC, were slated to perform the night tornados hit Ottawa-Gatineau in September 2018.

Opening the night is Gatineau via MTL hip hop and slam poetry duo Sam Faye and D-Track. In 2016, D-Track released the incredible album Message texte à Nelligan for which he earned a Prix Félix nomination (think Québec Juno Awards) in the hip hop album of the year category. Bien que l’artiste se soit installé à Montréal, il semble garder des racines profondes pour sa terre natale en Outaouais.

Dubmatique is playing Bar Minotaure (3 rue Kent) with special guests Sam Faye and D-Track. Doors open at 8pm and the show begins at 9pm. Tickets cost $23 online and $25 at the door.
