Dave Bidini's West End Phoenix monthly community newspaper for Toronto's West End launched this past October and Rush's Alex Lifeson contributes a "storytelling comic" titled The Meaning of Lifeson to the publication, which is illustrated by artist Casey McGlynn. The newspaper is holding a Phoenix Rising concert fundraiser tonight at 7PM at The Great Hall on Queen Street in Toronto, and Alex Lifeson will be on hand to perform with the Rheostatics and Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies. The event will be hosted by Tom Wilson (Lee Harvey Osmond) and other participants will include Whitehorse, Nasim Asgari and surprise special guests. Admission is by donation, but the RSVP list for the event has been full for several weeks now, so if you don't already have tickets you are probably out of luck. Hopefully some photos/video from the event will be posted online later tonight or tomorrow.
