Today in Toronto: Pages Festival Conference Opening Night, Arcade Fire, OCADU Zine Fair, Buck a Bite

Posted by Aubrey Jax / March 13, 2014

Today in TorontoToday in Toronto the Pages Festival kicks off for the first time ever, brought to you by Marc Glassman, the former owner of Pages Books (RIP) and founder This Is Not A Reading Series. Then Arcade Fire will be getting fancy at their sold out ACC gig: the Montreal band actually called their own fans out on being too frumpy at their arena shows, demonstrating their status as the last true punk band in indie rock. Not fancy? Northwood's got nibbly deals on, and OCAD is hosting a zine fair. For more events, click on over to our events section.

Ha! Arcade fire are not at all "the last true punk band in indie rock". What a preposterous notion! Win is just the biggest douchebag in music now.

"The last true punk band in indie rock". 《《《 ~~~ so much wrong with this. That aside, asking fans to dress up is the total opposite of punk rock
