This Day in Toronto: Nov 27 - 30

Ok, lazy day, too lazy to do a full blog. I got a shiatzu massage today, and I really just don't feel like doing anything. So, I'll give you till the end of the month, and then get the rest of the week up shortly, deal? Any suggestions on what people should do this week? put it in the comments section. Click on the links to hear songs or learn more about each event.


Ohbijou at Lee's Palace 9pm
I've mentioned them before, but maybe you didn't get out to see them that time. But seriously, you gotta give this band a chance. Beautiful, sweet melodies. Great show. Also playing is The Acorn, a band who's getting a lot of buzz these days (although unseen by me).


Broken Social Scene at Sound Academy 9pm
The band the rejuvenated the Toronto music scene (in the eyes of the rest of the world anyways), playing at Sound Academy... formerly known as The Docks. I don't even know what Broken Social Scene is up to these days, maybe a new album coming out soon? Either way, they put on, consistently, one of the best shows you'll ever see.


Lawrence of Arabia playing at Cinematheque Ontario
Well here's a film you HAVE to see at Cinematheque. I can only imagine how beautiful the desert landscapes look on a pristine print. If you love epics you have to see Lawrence of Arabia. The brits really knew how to make em' (see The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp for further proof).


Loudon Wainwright III at Hugh's Room

Some know him as the father of Martha and Rufus Wainwright. Others know him as the scene stealing father on Undeclared. But more than those things, Loudon is a very talented folk singer songwriter, who's been making great music since the late 60's. He's playing two nights at Hugh's Room (pretty much THE place to go in Toronto for great folk/ blues).

I'll get Mon - Wed up soon. I promise.
