11/6: Mosquito-B at Happy Dog Saloon

Mosquito-B frontman Dan Louis stopped in town earlier this year on a way to a show in Nashville to drum up some interest in his band. The Quebec City native didn’t play here, but he loved Cleveland so much, he vowed to come back with his band for a gig. They just released Raid, a collection of alt-rock tunes that recall the lighter side of the Foo Fighters and the heavier side of the Police. After 10 years in the advertising industry, Louis began recording his first album in 2001 and toured French-speaking Canada. For his second album, he signed a deal with Marc Durand (the man behind ’80s one-hit-wonders Men Without Hats), who encouraged Louis to sing in English, which he does on Raid. And true to his word, Louis and Mosquito-B make their Cleveland debut at 8 tonight at the Happy Dog Saloon (5801 Detroit Ave., 216.651.9474). Admission is free. — Jeff Niesel
