Andre Ethier is the most badass singer-songwriter you've never heard of. The Toronto musician (not to be confused with the LA Dodgers ballplayer of the same name*) used to front the grievously underrated garage-soul-folk-ruckus band the Deadly Snakes, which called it quits after releasing the Polaris-nominated album Porcella in 2006. Ethier continued on, and tonight at the Record Bar, he opens for lyrical genius Dan Bejar, aka Destroyer.
These two nuggets are off Andre's 2006 album Secondathallam (Paper Bag Records).

MP3: Andre Ethier, "Now I Wanna Be Your Dad"
*Fun fact!: Ethier was invited to sing "Oh Canada!" at a Blue Jays vs. Dodgers game.
