The year is almost done and it’s provided some stellar acts. It can be hard to keep up who to see and who’s coming with this much action going on. This week in particular Toronto will be home to some AMAZING acts.
Starting off the week with a bit of fun BAIO is playing The Garrison. Departing from Vampire Weekend, the bassist takes a step into the spotlight with his version of EDM that melts indie rock into electro. He plays The Garrison at 8 P.M.
Always a step outside the boundaries of a genre, Wolf Alice is a band to never miss. Their debut album brought fourth the UK rockers in a blaze of perfected rock, while their latest release, Visions of a Life, solidified their talent as more than a one time wonder. If you’ve never seen them live, you need to get your tickets for their Danforth show while you still can.
A stunning voice with a powerful presence, Cold Specks is a ray of light on any stage. This week she’ll be gracing the MOD Club with her personally enthralling voice. Her latest album is raw, honest and stunning and she is an act to see.
These guys have turned their past venues into all out moshpits. All ages shows are always a bit of a riot, when SWMRS are the headliner it may be best to bring a helmet. This time SWMRS will be taking over The Opera House with their perfectly awkward Californian rock.
An oddity with a sound out of the ’80s, Numan will be bringing his outlandish charm to The Opera House. His albums are all indulged in his quirks but his persona is best to be experienced live.
