This is a hard week to point anyone toward a single event. With high profile concerts like Beirut with Owen Pallet, Death Cab For Cutie with Frightened Rabbit, and Out of the Box Festival all keeping the city busy, there are plenty of ways to get your music fix.

But, for a guaranteed great show, I'd push you out the door to see Handsome Furs during their two night run at the Horsehoe.

Every time former Wolf Parader Dan Boeckner and his wife (Alexei Perry) blow through the city, they leave a bigger and bigger following of fans in their wake. Now, as they tour in support of their third album, Sound Kapital, you can get a live listen to the electronic/indie-rock hybrid that has left critics falling all over themselves — along with a show that will undoubtedly leave audiences exhausted and falling into sweaty heaps along Queen Street.

While tickets for their August 1st show are awfully scarce, the quickest of you can still visit the regular outlets and snatch up a pass to see Handsome Furs perform on August 2nd.
