Virtually everyone looked under dressed at The Mod Club as both Mookie & The Loyalists and Fitz and the Tantrums showed up in their finest garb. Apparently when RSVPing to this dance party, we all missed the part about suiting-up... funnily enough though, everyone remembered to wear their dancing shoes.

The Horseshoe Tavern may have been a little more "pop" than usual this past Friday night, but sandwiched in between the lineup’s two musically more mainstream acts was an authentic reminder of just how deep rock’s roots are soiled.

Considering Champ was one of my favourite albums of 2010, I was more than stoked for Tokyo Police Club’s headlining performance at the Kool Haus. I managed to catch them last year at The CASBY Awards and again as an opener for Phoenix, but this was the first time that I’d held a ticket with their name printed in bold.

Heavily in debt, left with a busted van, and even having to end their US tour early still hasn't stopped the Meligrove Band. Instead, when life gives you lemons, throw a damn good party at the Horseshoe Tavern with the help of Sandman Viper Command and The Order of Good Cheer!

The atmosphere at Lee’s last Thursday was reminisant of a cottage or a ski lodge – trapped inside in the dead of winter with all your friends, keeping warm, singing along to your favourite bands with beer in tow.

Having opened a couple of shows in Toronto this summer, Wintersleep finally got the chance to headline a show of their own at a larger venue. Despite being at the end of their recent tour, the band put forth an entertaining set, however at times seemed a bit low on energy.

Broken Social Scene touched down at the Sound Academy for the first of a two-show stint in their hometown, and once again reaffirmed that their status as a supergroup is just as much earned by their sheer talent as it is by the soaring numbers tallied within their ranks.

Standing at the edge of the stage, Nate Ruess (vocals) declared "We are Fun." It was intended to come across as a declaration of the band's name, but the expression on his face made it clear he meant it both ways. The man speaks the truth.

Hometown boys Bedouin Soundclash really wanted to thank people for coming out to see them play. And what's the best way for a band to do this? A career spanning set, containing the best songs from all 4 of their albums, and a very solid contribution from the up-and-coming Charlie Winston.

It took me a while to warm up to Dan Mangan. I just didn’t “get” what all the fuss was about. I would repeatedly hear how genuinely nice he was, how great and honest his music sounded, and yet it just didn’t seem to connect with me.
