This week's entertainment picks: Austra, Feist

New albums may have slowed to a trickle at this time of year, but there are still plenty of great live performances coming to Toronto.  Here are my choices for the week:

Austra w. Young Galaxy and Tasseomancy, The Phoenix, Dec 1
Few bands have made the kind of buzz Toronto indie dance rock outfit Austra has this year.  Add the always solid Young Galaxy and Tasseomancy (formerly Ghost Bees) and you have the makings of a great night out.

Feist, Massey Hall, Dec 1
I've seen Feist in this venue before and it is a wonderful experience.  The question is: why did it take her so long to get here?
