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.
ROBERT PLANT | MASSEY HALL | TUESDAY 7:30PM
If you’ve been holding out in the hopes of seeing Led Zeppelin perform, well, newsflash – it’s not gonna happen. So your best bet at getting close to the legendary 70s band is by attending this show, where you can see the lead singer of Led Zeppelin sing songs that are nowhere near as awesome as anything on IV.
COHEED AND CAMBRIA | KOOL HAUS | WEDNESDAY 7PM
Prog rockers Coheed and Cambria return to Toronto on Wednesday playing their landmark second album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 in its entirety for the first time ever.
CONSTANTINES | DANFORTH MUSIC HALL | THURSDAY & FRIDAY 8PM
Everyone loves a reunion, and the Constantines are certainly milking this one for all it’s worth. They’ve played a few times in Toronto already this summer, but if you missed them (or just want to see them again) they’re back for another two night stand, this time at the Danforth.
BEACH HOUSE | LEE’S PALACE | FRIDAY & SATURDAY 9PM
Good luck getting into either of these two sold out shows at Lee’s. A band this big probably should have chosen a venue larger than Lee’s for this tour, but the small space just makes trying to score last minute tickets over Craigslist even more worthwhile.
54-40 | DANFORTH MUSIC HALL | SATURDAY 7PM
If you’re up for some nostalgic dad rock this week, you should head to the Danforth for 54-40. Nothing will remind you of MuchMusic’s glory days more than hearing this song.
CURRENT SWELL | HORSESHOE TAVERN | SUNDAY 7:30PM
Victoria BC based indie rockers bring their brand of CanRock to the Shoe on Sunday evening, and it’s the perfect way to cap off a great week of music in Toronto.
