Singer/storyteller Corin Raymond has been playing 6-8 pm Thursdays at the Cameron House for 17 years; well, 17 and a 1/2, if you wanna get technical about it. The lineup: CORIN RAYMOND, emoting from his Canadian-as-fuck repertoire of original songs along with covers you've never heard, but should; BRIAN KOBAYAKAWA, who when he's not touring with Serena Ryder or Jill Barber is killing it on upright bass in the "red-velvet twilight"; MIKE T. KERR, as impossibly-talented a guitar player as he is a one-of-a-kind human being; and TREASA LEVASSEUR, on piano and accordion, singing like a songbird and lighting the place up like a Christmas tree. Speaking of which, "Christmas lights and booze" sums up the vibe at the Cameron. As for what to expect? Corin's banter is fast and loose, the music's warm and wooden, and the audiences are the nicest people around, from near and far. Best two hours you can spend in Toronto on a Thursday. Pay What You Can (you can never pay what they're worth). 'Nuff said!

Dirty Mansions Album Launch!

The London Music Club, 470 Colborne St., London

$20. Doors 700, show 8 pm. With London's BROOMSTICKS & HAMMERS!

A word about Corin Raymond's Dirty Mansions:

Two and a half years in the making, weighing in at ten songs and two bonus tracks produced by Winnipeg's Scott Nolan, accompanied by 264 pages of chords, lyrics, stories and art, this album release celebrates a project that's like Raymond's Paper Nickels, Bookworm, and his JUNO-nominated Hobo Jungle Fever Dreams all rolled into ONE. As well as being his finest song collection, Dirty Mansions is Raymond's first book launch! We hope you'll join Corin along with guitarist Mike T. Kerr, upright bassist Joe Phillips, keyboardist Treasa Levasseur, and Winnipeg's Joanna Miller on drums for this celebration that delves deeper into Raymond's literary-musical hybrid world than we've gone before. Magic guaranteed.
