If you ever watch indie shows with a vague feeling that you are descending into nihilism, hedonism, or an empty obsession with aesthetics, The Dears show at St. James Church this Saturday evening might be the cure for you. Not because it is in a church, which in my eyes makes it no more morally superior than Club Lambi, though admittedly much prettier. And not because The Dears' music contains an ethos any more convincing than other indie bands from Montreal, though they are great performers and play interesting venues (eg. Masonic Temple for POP Montreal). No, on Saturday your soul will be saved because the show is a fundraiser for the Every Kids Choir, a joint program between the St. James Church and the Montreal City Mission to provide free music education to children. This seems to be one of those rare unequivocally good causes, no matter your convictions, unless you hate children or music. Tickets are only $20, and even feature a performance by the Every Kid Choir as openers. Indie rock never felt so good.

The Dears at St. James Church, 463 rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, Saturday Jan. 31st at 7.00 PM. Tickets $20 from Atom Heart Records, Cheap Thrills, L'Oblique and Phonopolis. For information Call 514-844-9128.
