If you’re not familiar with what went down at Toronto’s Unlovable Bar last Thursday night during NXNE, we suggest you head over to The Grid to get the whole story.

As mentioned in the article, Toronto buzz-band PHÈDRE have released two new tracks with all the proceeds from sales going towards helping Unlovable get back on their feet. Check out this statement from the band’s website:

“In an unfortunate turn of events, a beloved Toronto institution, UNLOVABLE, was shut down last week. UNLOVABLE bar is run by great people who are friends to many and is a home to the local music and arts communities. Don’t let their livelihood get taken away. It will remain closed until the situation can be rectified through legal action. 100% of the proceeds of this track will be used to help cover legal bills as UNLOVABLE prepares for the fight to reopen.”

Below you will find Haberdash and also a MAJOR LAZER remix from the band… pick up the MP3′s and show your support.
