Looking For A Place T.O. Happen, January 25 & 26

Everyone is complaining about how cold it is in Toronto. To them, I say brave the elements and head out to catch some live music because there are a couple great gigs coming up this weekend.

The Queen west strip features several great bets including the always awesome Little Foot Long Foot are playing the Bovine Sex Club tomorrow night with The Micronite Filters and The Charming Ruins. Cover is a measly $5 and it’s a chance to see LFLF in a venue that’s suited to their down and dirty brand of rock ‘n roll.

Head a little further west on Queen to the Horseshoe for Julie Doiron, Jordan Klassen and Construction of Destruction cover is $18.

The Rivoli features a stellar line-up with The BeautiesEmma-Lee, Elisapie Isaac, Michael Ciufo and Fred Penner (Yes, that Fred Penner!) cover is $10.

Saturday night’s best bet is The Minotaurs‘ album release show for their latest release New Believers at the Tranzac Club. It’s an early start, 5 pm (!), and there’s nothing about the cover charge but I imagine it will be in the neighbourhood of $10. Kashka, Nick Flanagan, and Cirque du Soleil alumni Foo are also on the bill.


Looking For A Place T.O. Happen, New Year’s Eve Edition

There are plenty of great options for parties tomorrow night but here are a few of the standouts.

The Tranzac Club has a killer line-up featuring Sheezer, Gentleman Reg, Sunparlour Players, The Bicycles and much more. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door. This one is sure to sell out, if it hasn’t already, so pick up your tix at Rotate This and Soundscapes or be sure to get there early.

Head to The Sister for The Reply’s Downtown Soul EP release party. Heavy Metal For Girls and Neil Traynor and The Emergency Broadcast System are also on the bill. Cover is $15. Head here to RSVP.

Montreal Horror punks The Brains are ringing in 2013 with Dearly Beloved at Cherry Cola’s Rock ‘N Rolla Cabaret. Tix are $15.

The Sadies bring their NYE show to The Horseshoe Tavern for a 12th year. The Keyframes will be joining them. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.

Break out your vintage duds for the New Year’s Eve Dance Party at the Silver Dollar Room with Bloodshot Bill, Meanwood, Nicholas Doubleyou and Legato Vipers. Tix are $15 in advance, door price TBD.
