This week's entertainment picks: The National w. Neko Case, Tokyo Police Club w. Born Ruffians and Said The Whale

Any number of great shows could qualify as solid picks this week (Ryan Adams, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, etc), but I had to narrow it down, so here are my concert recommendations for the week:

The National w. Neko Case and Wye Oak, Air Canada Centre, Dec 8
Wow, how The National have taken off.  They've been great as I've seen them in increasingly large venues.  We'll see how they handle the cavernous ACC.  Oh yeah, Neko Case is no slouch either.

Tokyo Police Club w. Born Ruffians and Said The Whale, The Phoenix, Dec 8, 9, & 10
If you prefer your killer triple bills to be Canadian, then it's Tokyo Police Club with Born Ruffians, and the sleeper of the night Said The Whale, during this three night stand.
