You’re Fit But My Gosh Don’t You Know It
Often referred to as the Broken Social Scene babes (of which Feist is included), Emily Haines of Metric and Amy Milan of Stars are indeed scorching hot. However that is not the issue here. The constant recognition of their natural, milk-fed beauty shouldn’t trump the importance of their musical contributions to our fair city, or their actual music. So Torontoist will have to drool over the two in a later post. (This will be necessary since Chart Magazine dedicated a whole issue to Emily Haines’s hotness, unfairly ignoring the hot Amy Milan).
For now, here is the music news: Tonight, Haines does it all herself for a solo show at the Church of the Redeemer (162 Bloor St. W.). It’ll be Ms Haines and a piano. And, if at all like the last Broken Social Scene show in the summer, Haines will be wearing some EXTREMELY tight jeans (like almost painted on). Saturday night brings Torontoist faves and Amy Milan-fronted Stars to the Mod Club (722 College St.). Ms Milan will be busting out tunes from the latest Stars LP, Set Yourself On Fire. At the same Broken Social Scene show in the summer, Amy Milan waved at me. Both shows are in contention to be the highlights of the Toronto concert weekend. Tickets for Emily Haines are $17.50 from Ticketmaster, Rotate This, Soundscapes. For Stars, tickets are $15 at the same places.
