This Is The Kit

Otherwise known as British-born, Paris-based singer-songwriter Kate Stables. Her latest album is Moonshine Freeze, a bewitching situation of haunting folk-rock and eerie Americana. Indications are that she'll soon outgrow such an intimate venue, if she hasn't already.

Oct. 26 to Nov. 4., various times, $39 to $194. Elgin Theatre, 189 Yonge St., ticketmaster.ca.
