Toronto’s music scene can be pretty hectic.
In fact, often the only thing busier than the venues in this city is you. And since we know that a young professional (YP) lifestyle needs a good beat to back it up, we’re going to round up the best shows happening over the next seven days.
Every. Single. Week.
You don’t have to waste any more of your time searching for the next best concert – ‘cause every Monday you’ll find it right here.
CARIBOU | DANFORTH MUSIC HALL | MONDAY 7PM
Dan Snaith, former Polaris Prize winner, classically trained pianist, math doctorate, and all around great performe, is back in town, in support of yet another unanimously lauded album, Our Love.
AMANDA PALMER | LEE’S PALACE | TUESDAY 9PM
Always surrounded by controversy, you should probably attend Amanda Palmer’s show at Lee’s even if you’re not a fan – you never know what she might say or do. And what makes a live show better than unpredictability?
RUN THE JEWELS | DANFORTH MUSIC HALL | WEDNESDAY 8PM
If the music industry had an award show anywhere near as credible as the Oscars (sorry, Grammys, MTVs, AMAs, and Billboards: you all fail), the timely release of Run The Jewels 2 would be generating a fair amount of that end of season award buzz, so common to whatever Meryl Streep’s in each year.
THE TEA PARTY | KOOL HAUS | THURSDAY 7PM
If you grew up in the 90s, The Tea Party probably holds a special place in your heart. We didn’t say a good place – we said a special place. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger.
#mce_temp_url# will be taking over The Danforth this weekend for a THREE night stand. There’s ample opportunity to see them if you have other obligations this weekend.
SLOAN | THE PHOENIX | SATURDAY 8PM
These CanRock legends have been around forever, and we’re pretty okay with that. When a band has this many hits, we don’t want them to retire. See them Saturday and get all your 90s nostalgia out.
JAMES BLAKE | THE MOD CLUB | SUNDAY 8PM
London’s best electronic singer-songwriter has been making waves for years now – if you haven’t had a chance to see him live, now’s the time to change that. Oh, and his covers aren’t bad either…
