Christian Howes

ComFest is over, but there's still a lot of music to take in. Consider these two selections from last week's paper:

Christian Howes' Creative Strings Workshop kicks off today with performances at the North Market (12:30 p.m.-2 p.m.), Rumba Cafe (10 p.m.-2 a.m.) and Dick's Den (10 p.m.-2 a.m.). Festivities continue all week, with 28 performances in all.

On a completely different tip, teen metalcore sensations The Devil Wears Prada will play the second of three sold-out nights at The Basement, 391 Neil Ave. Get a quick synopsis in my preview. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets should be $18 in case you want to scalp your way in.
