INTRODUCING ••• HONOURABLE MENTION BY SIMONE DESILETS, LISTINGS EDITOR Every issue we must wrestle with two problems vis a vis our Concert listings: The first is logistical: information comes in too late. So for these "lost sheep" we have, as many of you know, a regular niche. (See Too LATE TO LIST, page 44.} The second is judgmental: what to do with concerts which for one reason or another just fail to qualify for our daily listings. Hence this new file dedicated to true concerts (classical, jazz, new, world) in alternative venues, and "non grata" concerts in our usual venues ... Bar Code (upstairs, 549 College St W.)
