Brendan Canning, Holly Miranda 

When: Mon., Dec. 2, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $13-15
A visit from Broken Social Scene doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon, so how about a set by one of the band's figureheads? Brendan Canning just released his second solo record, You Gots 2 Chill, and this time the Social Scener eschews much of his band's genre-jumping and grand orchestrations in favor of understated, laid-back bedroom-pop. The tracks are built on melodic, finger-picked guitar lines that would never exist in such an unadorned state with BSS, but Canning makes the most of the barebones songs, borrowing a fair bit from guitarist John Fahey, even acknowledging as much with album opener "Post Fahey."
