By Divine Right's Last Depeche Mode Cover Performance To Help All Paws

You are here

By Divine Right are hoping to provide some animals in need with "new life," when they perform as part of a benefit concert event for the All Paws Rescue Group happening Dec. 8 at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern.

The veteran indie band, which once counted Leslie Feist and Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning among its members, is promising the event will be the last time they'll play Speak And Spell U.S., their recent project reinterpreting Depeche Mode's 1981 album Speak And Spell and its hit songs "Just Can't Get Enough," "Dreaming Of Me" and "New Life."

Founded in 2013 by Michelle Borg, the All Paws Rescue Group operates mostly in the Peel Region around the Greater Toronto Area, working to provided urgent care, foster and forever homes for animals in need of adoption. Funded solely by donations and supported entirely by volunteers, All Paws has helped over 500 animals find homes since it began.

The benefit concert, which has been put together by the Manitou Canada music company, will be used to raise funds and awareness for All Paws. All Paws will also be collecting donations of cans/bags of pet food, litter, new and gently used leashes, collars, cages, crates, beds or monetary donations at the show.

"Through my work, I've learnt a lot about the community and the kindness of strangers," said Borg, in a release. "I was delighted when Manitou approached me and offered to get some bands together to raise funds and awareness. This will be the first live music event for us so we're super-excited! It's going to be a fantastic night and I can't wait to see everyone out at the Horseshoe."

The other acts performing classic cover songs that night include Eamon McGrath, Lake Forest, Before The Flood and SAVVIE. Tickets will be $10 at the door.
