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.

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.
