Looking For A Place T.O.Happen, November 23 & 24

Let me preface this by saying that I realize that a majority of the football fans in Toronto this weekend for the 100th Grey Cup are going to be respectful and well behaved, it’s just the small minority of drunken douchebags that are going to ruin it.

But don’t let that stop you from heading out to catch some live music this weekend as there are several solid bets.

Pop With Brains is hitting the big four-oh at The Rivoli with a line-up that features Angela SainiThe Undrummer, the last gig from Secrettes, PWB founder Adymm Ender‘s band, Pale Eyes and The Cool Hands.

The event will also feature art from Louise Ferguson, Pursuade Me, Shane Heron, Laurie’s Crafty Creations, Andi Social’s Twist and Lily Monster Meat.

The cover is only $5 and all proceeds go to CAMH.

Saturday’s best, albeit pricey, bet is the always amazing Jenn Grant and Cuff the Duke at The Wintergarden Theatre. Tickets are $29.50 to $39.50 at Ticketmaster and Soundscapes.

The Highest Order and Wicked Witches are playing The Silver Dollar. Tix are $8 at Rotate This and Soundscapes and $10 at the door.

Montreal indie rock band Malajube is taking a break and Saturday night’s gig at The Horseshoe Tavern may well be one of your last chances to catch them for a while. Still Life Still are also on the bill with a third act TBA.

Tickets are $15 in advance at Rotate This, Soundscapes, ‘The ‘Shoe and Ticketmaster or $18 at the door.

Gabrielle Papillon Shows Her Little Bug This Fall

Halifax singer/songwriter Gabrielle Papillon has announced that she will release her fourth studio album Little Bug this fall.

She worked with Daniel Ledwell, who produced the amazing Jenn Grant’s Juno-nominated album Honeymoon Punch. Grant puts in an appearance on the track ‘Turn Left’. (Which is reason enough to check out the album in my opinion!). Roxanne Potvin lends fretwork to the solo on ‘Moonless Night’.

Little Bug  features nine new tracks including Papillon’s first song in French (‘Coccinelle’). She also reworked two fan favourites from her previous outing The Wanderer, ‘I Am Sold’ and ‘Turn Left’

For a taste of what to expect, check out the video below and catch her on August 3 at the Harbourfront Lounge in Halifax;
