Today: Evening Hymns returns to Toronto, a Fringe favourite gets her own holiday show, and...the end of the world.
MUSIC: After embarking on a four-month tour of Europe and Canada, Evening Hymns is finally coming home for an intimate night of music. Neil Haverty, of Bruce Peninsula, will be opening the show with a solo performance. The Music Gallery (197 John Street), 7 p.m., $20.
COMEDY: Get into the holiday spirit with the return of a favourite character from the Toronto Fringe Festival. That’s right: Maude-Lynne is back with An Especially Maude-Lynne Xmas, which is actually more of an anti-Christmas special. There will be carols and gifts for the audience, among other things. Videofag (187 Augusta Avenue), runs to December 22, 8 p.m., $15.
CABARET: Well, it’s been swell. While everyone else is holding their apocalypse parties tomorrow night (which makes zero sense, considering the fact that the world is supposedly ending tomorrow), here’s one that you can go to before humanity is thrust into chaos. Cabaret at the End of the World will include an album-release performance by High Heels Lo Fi, as well as burlesque dancers. Rancho Relaxo (300 College Street), 9 p.m., $5.
