Hot Ticket for the week of May 8th - May 14th


With Sigur Ros hopelessly soldout, how will you dig your weekend from the depths of despair? How does an evening with the beloved Henri Faberge & the Adorables playing a benefit for the also beloved Brantford Ford Plant sound? Throw in The Guest Bedroom, The Secret Handshake, The Miles and Megaband 2 and toss the whole sweaty mess into The Boat = hot-diggity. Friday May 12 at the Boat (158 Augusta), $5, all ages. -- Beth

Local electronic duo Tinkertoy gets down this Wednesday with a live PA at the Social. Richly textured and gorgeously crafted soundscapes rupture and enrapture as driving, melodic tech glitch keeps time. Rife with unique samples care of the mundane and the everyday, Tinkertoy's minimal sound is anything but. With DJ Toma and DJ Triplet. Wednesday May 10th at the Social (1100 Queen W), $5. -- Panthea

Get your Soul at the Supermarket this Friday. The ongoing Soul On Ice series will feature James Bryan (guitarist for The Philosopher Kings and frontman for new group Sunshine State) who will no doubt dish out a tasty mix of house, funk, afro and soul. Friday May 12 at the Supermarket (268 Augusta Ave.), $8, 10pm. -- Ryan
