Jen's $10 (or Less) Concert Pick: Feb 25 - Mar 3, 2010

We Are The City

Wednesday night two up-and-coming West Coast bands perform at Rancho Relaxo, bringing with them a smoother indie rock sound than we're used to here in the big smoke.

We Are The City
Aidan Knight, Little City
Rancho Relaxo, Toronto
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 9:00pm, $5

Rancho Relaxo is one of the city's breeding grounds for indie rock bands of all kinds. The venue normally showcases local and local-ish groups, and is rarely the place to be to see a good out-of-towner. Not so this Wednesday. Headliners We Are The City from Kelowna, BC, and released In A Quite World last year to much acclaim. I've just gotten into this band, but I'm looking forward to hearing more. The trio is currently touring with Victoria's Aidan Knight (who himself just finished up a tour with Dan Mangan). Knight is also set to have a good 2010, with his Versicolour coming out on Tuesday. Consider this your chance for a rare glimpse at two talented acts from afar.

Other Good Bets

North of America performs a one-off reunion show on Friday night at the Silver Dollar Room with support from Germans and Boars. This is one of those "late night live" things at the Dollar, so doors aren't until 10:15pm, with a $10 cover (and tickets are also available in advance). Saturday night the Dakota Tavern plays host to two local duos, dirty blues rockers catl and a stripped down version of country band $100. This is a guaranteed good time. The music gets started around 10pm, and cover is a measly $5.
