Live at Massey Hall

Massey Hall to launch new film series

Toronto's historic Massey Hall will begin a new live concert film series this spring, titled (predictably, but how could they not have gone this direction) Live at Massey Hall. The first two concerts to be filmed are planned for late May and will feature, respectively, folksy trio Timber Timbre with soulful Cold Specks opening, then French-Canadian singer-songwriter CÅ“ur de Pirate with special guest Bry Webb.

Massey Hall was built in 1894, so tickets to the show, which you can grab here, are selling for $18.94 exactly. It's a pretty decent deal to see these acts in such a lovely space and be a part of Toronto music history. The Live at Massey Hall films will appear as 30-minute episodes, and while there's no word next on who's next, a noisy night of METZ matched with, dare I hope for it, a second Induced Labour reunion could serve to shake things up from the venue's rather tame first-run.

The first gig with Timbre Timbre will happen Friday, May 23rd, and the second with Coeur de Pirate is Saturday, May 31st. Tickets on sale this Saturday at 12pm.
