This Week in Music: Hayden announces tour dates, Mushy Callahan at Tattoo Rock Parlour

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

IN THE NEWS

Hayden announces fall tour, premieres new video

After releasing Us Alone, his first album in four years, back in February, Hayden will close out 2013 by heading out on a 10-date North American tour. The notoriously reclusive artist, who didn't tour in support of his 2009 album The Place Where We Lived, will play four shows in the northeast US before coming back to Ontario for six more shows across the province. He'll close out the tour on Nov. 30 in Toronto at the Danforth Music Hall. In addition to the tour, Hayden also unveiled a music video for "Blurry Nights," which you can watch below. Head on over to his official website for more information on the tour.

THIS WEEK'S HOT TICKETS

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20 / MUSHY CALLAHAN / TATTOO ROCK PARLOUR / 567 QUEEN W / 19+

After successfully completing a UK tour, Mushy Callahan is coming home. The Alberta-bred quartet, which is now based out of Toronto, will be releasing their debut album Makings of a Man this month, and they'll be celebrating with an album release party at the Tattoo Rock Parlour. The band has quietly been making a name for themselves over the last little while, and I predict that you're going to see big things coming from them. They've certainly got the chops to make it big.

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21 / LADIES OF THE CANYON / HORSESHOE TAVERN / 370 QUEEN W / $8 / 19+

I saw Ladies of the Canyon live at Festival Music House back in 2011, and as a fan of roots and country, I was immediately taken in by their music. The all-female quartet out of Montreal has an awesome stage presence, and their music is very accessible. Eight bucks for a ticket is ridiculously cheap, and you also get to see Taylor Knox and local folk heroes The Old Salts. This will be a great night of music.
