Live Baby Live – Week of Oct. 2

Soulwax_2352 If you’re not completely burnt out from Nuit Blanche, there are plenty of quality shows to check out this week, including Joanna Newsom, Massive Attack, and Myspace darling Lily Allen. Alternatively, you Hip fans can skip out on the live music this week and save up your change for all four (yes, FOUR) of the recently announced shows at the Phoenix a few weeks from now. Can Gord Downie and pals really justify the $60 admission fee these days? Could they ever? On a similar note, Guns N’ Roses are coming to the ACC in November — should they be asking fans to shell out up to $85 to see a bloated Axl Rose trying to slither around the stage, caterwauling ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine‘? Wouldn’t that just be painful to watch? Are we asking too many questions? Okay, we’ll stop.
If you know of anything fun and exciting going on that we missed, let us know in the comments.
