ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
Call the Office will be the place to be in November. Everyone's
favourite twins Tegan and Sara return for a new Canadian tour
that makes a stop at the Office on Mon., Nov. 3, before they
begin work on their next record. Accompanying the duo will
be ex-Weezer bassist, ex-Rentals frontman Matt Sharp who is
a huge Tegan and Sara fan; Sharp, who released his EP Puckett's
Versus the Country Boy this summer, will open the show and
also plans to do some sweet back-up vocals. And even if you
like neither band, the crowd mix of lesbians and geeks should
prove to be entertaining in itself.
Punk rock is always an Office specialty as Jersey hit the
CTO stage on Sat., Nov. 8. Dropkick Murphys break out the Boston
Irish drinking jams on Tue., Nov. 11, and Montreal's The Planet
Smashers blast through their very hot ska-pop on Tue., Nov.
The Smashers' hometown friends The Dears are also set to return
to the Office on Fri., Nov. 21 for what is sure to be a night
of magestic and catastrophic indie-pop, while the Joel Plaskett
Emergency is set to hit the stage on Tue., Nov. 25 in support
of their recently released disc Truthfully Truthfully.
The month at the Office is then capped off by the great Constantines
who make their first London stop on Fri., Nov 28 since the
release of their Shine a Light disc on Sub Pop. Definitely
one that shouldn't be missed.
