Live Baby Live – Week of Nov. 27

30STM © Carrie Musgrave
It’s that time of the year–benefit concert season. There are a number of them coming up in the next few weeks, including The Holiday Jam (Sick Kids), Jason Collett & The Constantines (CARE Canada), and Bedouin Soundclash (Doctors Without Borders/War Child), so if you’re in a giving mood, this may be a good way to do it while also catching some great music.
Best bets for this week include Tenacious D tonight (love/hate…always entertaining), Danny Michel on Thursday (home grown goodness), and it’s a struggle with who to choose on Saturday…on one hand, there’s Tokyo Police Club, who’ll soon be playing shows for much more than $10, and on the other hand there’s Les Breastfeeders, a French band who have the best damn tambourine player on tour. Oh, the decisions.
Got a good tip on a show we haven’t included? Let us know in the comments.
