The Wooden Sky have announced plans for their seventh annual Holiday Revue in Toronto. Tickets went on sale Monday, with the band adding a second Toronto show to meet demand for this year’s event.
The annual holiday fundraiser will be held at 918 Bathurst in Toronto on Wednesday, December 14, and Thursday, December 15. Ticets are $25. All proceeds from the event go Romero House, an organization dedicated to helping refugee families find their feet here in Canada.
It’s a great chance to get out and see some live music and support a great cause.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since we had the gall to call the first event an ‘annual’ affair,” said Wooden Sky singer Gavin Gardiner in a release. “Over the years this has been an opportunity for us to bring a great group of friends together, try out new songs and play old ones in new ways.
“After spending the year recording and touring in conventional venues, it’s really special for us to put on such a D.I.Y. event, taking on every responsibility from delivering tickets by bike, to setting up the bar. Of course it’s not just the five of us putting it together, it takes a lot of loved ones to pull it off and we couldn’t do it without them.”
For the second straight year The Wooden Sky will take their Holiday Revue to Ottawa, with a date set for Monday, December 12, at St. Alban’s Church. Proceeds from the Ottawa show will go Carty House, an organization that provides transitional housing for female refugee claimants.
