Raisin' The Dead
This has to be one of the coolest concerts I've heard of in a long time.

And this is no small event--there's a huge lineup including performances by Library Voices and Rah Rah.
There's even a spooky theme to this evening, complete with psychic readings.
The Indian Head Theatre has a long, storied past.
Built in 1904, it's the longest operating performance space in the province--some people say it's haunted.
There will be buses running to and from Regina.
The show is Saturday night in Indian Head.
