GIGS 2019 (scroll down for list)

Fri Nov 29, 8:30-10:30pm, Dakota Tavern Toronto - I'll be playing with the Galactic Gals Space Event featuring Lily Frost, Rebecca Everett, Courtenay Stevens, and others, and the band! This should be a blast! Space music, readings, visuals, even a Tarot card reading. It's an early show so everyone should be able to come. This is something really different, a FUN multi media experience. Blast off to Planet Claire.
