CMW 2015 hosts Jesus and Mary Chain anniversary

Canadian Music Week is exciting to someone, somewhere, so here are your newest line up details. Billy Talent, Magic, Faith No More, Lights, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Kiesza, John Mellencamp, Alvvays and more have been added to the bill for the extended May 1-10 festival.

Most notably, Scottish rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain will celebrate the 30th anniversary of gorgeous LP Psychocandy in Toronto. And then Detroit. And then Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Denver, Vancouver, Seattle, and San Fransisco. But it will be um, very special.

More local acts playing CMW include Jazz Cartier, Stacey, the Dirty Nil, Animalia, Whitehorse, Birds of Bellwoods, Champion Lover, Shi Wisdom, Blue Sky Miners, Harrison, and the the OBGMs.

In May, nearly a thousand bands will fill 60-ish Toronto venues. Wade through the line up here, look into tickets, concert lotteries, and volunteer opportunities on their site, or just go to the unique shows that genuinely engaged Toronto promoters put on every day of the week.
