The Ape-ettes

Friday, July 20th at 4:30 P.M.

The Ape-ettes, made up of Julie Katherine Houle (guitar), Melanie McDonald (drums) and Andrée St-Onge (bass), are a scrappy rock-garage-psych-pop trio who sing in French and English. Their self-titled album, released in June 2017,  has short driving songs like “Bless this Mess” and “Tu m’aimes – tu? (même pas proche).” In its review, Ride the Tempo wrote: “The bouncy sounds of Sudbury’s The Ape-ettes is a colourful delight, and there’s also a slight riot grrrl edge to the surfy garage rock.”
