Ellen Allien, at the Mod Club on Nov. 26.

Check the flip for Zoilus's monthly Toronto shows calendar - rock, jazz, hip-hop and electronics are all in the house. Hope to see you, for instance, Toronto readers, at the 416 Festival of improvised music, the Blow show Nov. 6 or Del/Aceyalone/etc. at the Phoenix that afternoon or Venetian Snares late that night, the Laibach show, the Animal Collective show, the Fred Eaglesmith residency later in the month at Hugh's Room, the David Essig show there this week, the Morr Music/Lali Puna show at Lee's mid-month, Ryan Kamstra's theatrical-extravaganza CD launch Nov. 17 at the Vatikan, Psychic TV on the 18th, the Cyrus Chestnut/Wycliffe Gordon gigs at the Senator towards the end of the month, Greg Clow's cool Sunday electronics nights at the Tequila Lounge, and of course at Tin Tin Tin on Nov. 24.

Additions and corrections more than welcome. The calendar will be updated throughout the month.
