Every year, the SiriusXM Indies are a part of Canadian Music Week created to recognize a plethora of artists in a broad range of categories.

All the nominees and winners of the awards can be found on the SiriusXM Indies Nominees/Winners page, so check out all the great music and artists that were nominated and the winners of each category. Some notable wins include Metric for Group Of The Year, Matt Mays for Male Artist Of The Year, Said The Whale for Must Follow Artist Of The Year, Yukon Blonde for Alternative Artist Or Group Of The Year, The Wooden Sky for Folk/Roots Artist Or Group Of The Year, and Poor Young Things for SiriusXM Emerging Artist Of The Year, among many more. And what a coincidence that so many of these winners were scheduled to play the show!

There were lots of excellent performances, many by the winners above, but the surprise of the night was the excellent set from Canailles, a band I had not heard of before. Although many of the sets were quite short, the last three artists to perform were given good spot lengths, and Metric completely owned the stage for over an hour to close out the night.
