Thursday November 19th

9 p.m. Dublin St. United Church, 68 Suffolk St W
What is Le Cyc? Well, it’s a graphic novel bike opera performed live; an hour long musical performance with a six-piece band and over 400 projected illustrations telling the story of city run on bike power. A unique that keeps changing with every new performance and a must-see for the environmentally-minded. Advance tickets are available for $10 at the CSA office (UC RM 274) and Ground Floor Music (13 Quebec St.)
Saturday November 21st
Sound One, the Greasemarks and Conroy Quintet
11 p.m. Jimmy Jazz, 52 Macdonell St
It’s a rockabilly sandwich on jazz bread with a ska seasoning for this triple bill. The nine-piece Sound One kicks off the night with that ska-infused jazz sound, with the Greasemarks returning to town, and taking things up a notch with that roof-raising southern rock sound. Last, but not least, returning with jazz flavour is the brand new Guelph outfit, the Conroy Quintet.
Monday November 23rd
8 p.m. Dublin Street United Church, 68 Suffolk Street West
Rounding out the week is another act from the east coast, folk hero Stephen Fearing. A multi Juno award winner who has collaborated with the likes of Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLachlan, Fearing is a league of his own. Well worth heading out on a Monday to see. Andrew McPherson opens. Tickets can be purchased at the River Run Centre.
