“For a Living Planet” fights environmental degradation by teaming three classic Canadian artists for a special concert that benefits World Wildlife Fund Canada. Heading the philanthropic triptych of tunesmiths, Vancouver’s immortal 54-40 celebrates its 30th anniversary with a set of brisk pop and punk-addled hits culled from a magical lamp that emits quarter notes. Celebrated songstress Jully Black, known for her work with Nas and Missy Elliott, synchronizes heartbeats with stirring R & B arias and fits of funk. Prolific Juno Award–winner Hawksley Workman pops the cork on a bottle of glam pop, rounding out an environmentally and musically minded evening that's sure to dazzle human audiences and pandas possessed by the spirit of Judy Garland.
