Had a fun time last night playing with so many great artists at the Andy Kim Christmas Special. Debut gig for my new LERXST CHI amp and the By-Tor pedal. Both performed perfectly! See you next year, Andy! ~ Lerxst

The 19th annual Andy Kim Christmas show in support of CAMH Gifts Of Light will take place TONIGHT at Massey Hall in Toronto, and Rush's Alex Lifeson will be one of the featured guest performers. Other guests will include Broken Social Scene, Metric, The Sadies, Molly Johnson, Ron Sexsmith, Dan Hill, Scott Helman, High Flyer and more. The show is slated for an 8PM start, and you can get all the details and purchase tickets at this location (direct ticket link here). Interestingly enough, Geddy Lee is currently back in Toronto and will be at the very same venue tomorrow night, when he wraps up the North American leg of his book tour. So it's not outside the realm of possibility that Geddy could make an appearance at tonight's show either as a spectator or - if we're lucky and Ged's feelin' it - even as a performer. Alex has participated in the Andy Kim Christmas Show several times in the past, with his most recent appearance being in 2021, as seen in the video below.
