I know these things about February: 1) it's the month of purification (that's why Purity Ring are coming through town), 2) SAD reaches its peak, 3) Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday and thus a complete waste of time, and 4) "leaplings" are the luckiest people around as they age far more slowly than the rest of us. Man, who wouldn't want to be a leapling? Doesn't it just sound so cool?
Anyway, here's what else I know. February is not the greatest month for live music in Toronto. While not as sparse as January, we're not totally out of the rut yet. That'll have to wait until CMW arrives in March. Can somebody wake me up when it's spring? Thanks!
Summer music festivals are so 2012 (as are heat waves, beachwear, and, thankfully, sweat stains). Rather than bemoan our seasonal state, it's high time to embrace winter. Those Fucked Up folks have already caught on, and a few others are helping out with programming to round out the underrated winter music festival experience in this city. So here are 5 upcoming festivals to help us survive the winter of our discontent.
Happy New Year's Day, you guys! Does your head hurt? Is your "resolution" to "never drink again?" Classic everybody. As usual this month sees old favourites come through town as well as some potential new faves! But to be honest, this month is slim pickins! So let's hope February is better for both concert selection and decisions. Don't tell me what your resolutions are in the comments, but instead feel free to spout off about any shows that you think are worth adding.
