This Week in Music: MIA show moved, DIANA, Blimp Rock, Airplane Boys, Chicago Underground Duo

This Week in Music rounds up the latest news, releases and concerts coming to Toronto.

MIA show moved to Tattoo
Canadian Music Week have moved the MIA show from Yonge & Dundas Square to Tattoo on Queen, which is more than a considerable downsize. They explain it here. If you want to see MIA, get ready for things to be complicated way before she hits the stage on May 3: "on Wednesday, April 30th at 6pm, 200 wristbands will be given out at Tattoo Queen West (567 Queen Street West). The wristbands will allow front-of-line access to the event. All attendees must be 19 years of age or older (must bring valid ID for pick-up), one wristband per person, wristbands are non-transferable."

Look out for our full CMW preview, coming later this week.

New Toronto music videos

Owen Pallett - Song for Five & Six
Putting ballet in a music video is a no-fail, but Pallett gets extra credit for having actually scored one.

DIANA - Strange Attraction
Loving the eyebags and huge hair.

Airplane Boys (APB) - Harvest
Possibly the most stylish video ever to feature Scarborough.

Blimp Rock - Lake Ontario Lifeguards
What goes on in the middle of Lake Ontario? A question no one has ever asked is answered to full satisfaction in this cute animation.

Greys - Guy Picciotto
The whole point of being in a band is making videos where you throw shit off buildings.

Hot ticket concert

Chicago Underground Duo
Killer experimental/jazz show alert: Chicago Underground Duo will be joined by Not the Wind, Not the Flag and King Weather. Basically anything on Northern Spy Records is worth hitting up, but these guys are really something else. May 1, 8pm, The Garrison (1197 Dundas St.), $12, all ages.
