IN BRIEFS

We know what you want: Busta!
Wow. If you never thought big names in hip-hop would care to visit this very white Anne Murray-lovin’ city of ours, think again. Next Monday, Mr. Busta Rhymes himself will be making sure he has us all in check when he hits the stage at Club Phoenix. Opening for the kooky rapper will be Canadian hip-hoppers Bishop and Kyprios. Tickets are a whopping $30 in advance from Ticketmaster or the Club Phoenix box office, or $50 at the door — but hey, it’s not every day that a kickass performer like Busta comes to this place.

Counting down to Metric
Los Angeles (by way of New York and Toronto) pop-rockers Metric finally make it to London in support of their critically-acclaimed, new-wave-influenced album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?. With appearances in Spin magazine and on MTV2, thanks to their latest video “Combat Baby,” the group will be at Call the Office this Saturday with those cute, garage-y rockers Tangiers who have a new collection of tunes out this spring. Tickets are $8 in advance at Speed City Records. Call 432-BAND for more information.

Cruisin’ together
with Tom Benner

Tom Benner brings his handmade automobiles to the McIntosh Gallery in the touring exhibit Cruising the Margins. The show, curated by Catherine Elliot Shaw, will feature replicas of a 1957 De Soto, 1958 Pontiac Starchief and a 1957 Chevy Apache pickup — all engineless, but mobile — and opens tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. (running until Apr. 11) with a free public walking tour with Benner on Thursday, Mar. 11.
