Feist and Hayden @ Bell Center Tomorrow!

Posted by Sarah / November 4, 2008

FeistIt's been a while since we've seen our beloved Canadian sweetheart, Feist, come around Montreal (I think).Tomorrow night though, she's moving into greater spaces with an upgrade to one of the biggest venues in town and to offer the Montreal public a starry performance at the Bell Center. Though she started out in the Toronto Indie scene with the infamous collective Broken Social Scene, her solo career has made this unpretentious-diva famous world-wide. Her gorgeous, graceful voice has not only crossed political borders and oceans, but appeals to fans from all age groups.

This time around Feist has added a humanitarian agenda to her national tour. She is involved with "two major charity efforts: there will be a food drive with local affiliates of the Canadian Association of Food Banks at every show along her Fall tour; and the Canadian charities CARE Canada, MSF (Doctors Without Borders) and War Child Canada will receive ALL of the proceeds from Feist merchandise sales. Concert-goers are asked to bring non-perishable food items to the Bell Centre, where a local representative from the CAFB will be accepting donations. One lucky winner each night will win a very special piece of limited Feist memorabilia, custom made for the food drive winners." (quoted from press release of October 30th, 2008).

As an added bonus, one of my undergrad-years favorite, the great singer-songwriter and ever-so-charming Hayden will be opening up the show with his slightly melancholic folk songs. I haven't had the chance to see him play live yet, but apparently he's a hoot on stage. The in-between song stories and chatter are reported to crack smiles on audience faces everywhere.

I believe there are still tickets left, so go, bring your friends, bring nonperishable goods, buy the merch, and support the great causes. I even believe she now has a very special limited edition of The Reminder being released, with a bunch of cool remixes on it.

to himself as he aanrrged the detritus of his little life as decoratively as possible on the rickety table.Most people don't need their appendix, but Jimmy's Uncle Ziggy was one of those rare individuals who actually needed their appendix, and Uncle Ziggy needed a new one if he wanted to continue his life as an unemployed poultry technician.At that moment a a nondescript PT Cruiser drove up driven by what could only be described as a precarious graduate student. In the front passenger seat sat a man with a look of deep dissolution on his pinched face. Both driver and passenger appeared to be drunk. The driver rolled down his window and addressed Jimmy.“Hello,” the driver said. “Professor Boylan and myself are hell-bent on engaging in ill-advised affairs with precarious undergraduate and graduate students.”“Respectively,” the old man slurred.“Yes,” the driver said, turning back toward Jimmy. “Would you happen to be selling any D cell batteries?” No, Jimmy said, fearing for his Uncle Ziggy's life.
