Looking For A Place T.O. Happen, December 14 & 15

Having been a big fan of Lily Frost for years, The Silver Dollar is the last venue I ever imagined her playing. But she is playing there alongside Gregory Pepper & His Problems, The Thieves, Among Millions and Bury The Hatchet on December 15. Cover is $7.

Fucked Up brings their Long Winter Program, Volume 2 to The Great Hall on the 15 along with Absolutely Free, the Highest Order, Dusted, Marine Dreams, The Weather Station, Single Mothers, Laura Barrett and Kristian Pedersen. Cover is PWYC and it’s an all-ages gig.

Hotly buzzed Montreal artist Mac Demarco will hit the Silver Dollar on the 15 for the XXXmas party. Actual Water, Cut Flowers, Unfinished Business and Dutch Toko are also on the bill. Cover is $10.

Finally, my good friend Octoberman is playing The Local.
