Show Alert: Phog Lounge becomes the House of Wax

It's crystal clear to us: Windsor's Phog Lounge becomes the House of Wax tonight (Fri., Nov. 18) as one of our favorite performers, Wax Mannequin, brings his unique vocals, lyrics and delivery of progressive pop/folk back to Canada's Best Live Music Venue. We love his quirky show and his fifth full-length album, Saxon (2009), even more.

Also playing:

B.A. Johnston (Hamilton). We're not sure how to describe Johnston, but we're pretty sure "conventional" won't be one of the adjectives we'd use. Check out some of his album song titles on his website.

If you can't make it to Windsor, Wax and B.A. Johnston will be at the Black Shire Pub in London tomorrow (Sat., Nov. 19).
