    About the Event
    • February 1
      After a decade of banging out high-energy, danceable indie, the Toronto-by-way-of-Ottawa duo are calling it quits - but not without another couple farewell rockouts, the first being at the Horsehoe.
    • February 2
      Slowly moving beyond being known as the girl in that Gotye song (no, don’t try to remember it...aaand it’s stuck in your head again), the charismatic New Zealand electro-pop star is finally releasing her third full-length this April.
      Mod Club Theatre
    • February 5
      Y’all out there who appreciate pretty harmonies, this one’s for you. This duo’s sweet vocalizing over earthy folk is so authentically Southern, it’s hard to believe they’re actually from Sweden.
      Danforth Music Hall
    • February 10
      Another feather in the Buzz Records cap, the suburban foursome are launching their debut LP in a manner befitting any decent art-rock band - at a gallery alongside an art exhibition.
    • February 10
      One of the most inventive options this month is the Music Gallery’s showcase of Indigenous artists exploring their traditional language and how it shapes the music they make. The roster ranges from young upstarts to seasoned Grammy Award-winners.
    • February 15
      Lovers of everything drone and weird, mark down this rare chance to see the former member of Coil perform live - he’ll be exhibiting Time Machines, the hyper-experimental opus they released 20 years ago, in its entirety.
      The Garrison
    • February 17
      The reigning Polaris-Prize winner had a huge 2017, breaking barriers and receiving widespread acclaim, and it doesn’t look like 2018 will be any quieter. Her Toronto stopover has been expanded to two nights to keep up with demand.
      The Drake Hotel
    • February 17
      Both Cali rappers made stellar albums last year and are set to take on new ventures in 2018 (animated TV show for Tyler, a Converse collab for Vince). But before they go full-mogul, they’re heading out on tour together.
      Ricoh Coliseum
    • February 18-19
      The Midnight Organ Fight was the breakthrough release for this Scottish indie band, and still regarded as one of the essential breakup albums of this century. They’re celebrating its 10th anniversary by performing it in full on a tour with Wintersleep
      Mod Club Theatre
    • February 20
      The potato of his brother’s eye, Noel’s current band is doing quite well for themselves with the psychedelically tinged Who Built the Moon? from last fall. Unclear whether they’ll have the scissors player on tour though.
      Sony Centre for the Performing Arts
    • February 20
      It’s that very loud time again: Decibel’s annual homage to current leaders in metal is making the rounds, stopping off at the Phoenix with four powerhouses: Enslaved, Wolves in the Throne Room, Myrkur and Khemmis.
      The Phoenix Concert Theatre
    • February 22
      This hardcore foursome broke up in 2004 and has toyed with being a band again over the past few years, playing the odd reunion gig. Now it’s the real deal - see them right after their new self-titled comes out with No Warning and Spiritual Cramp.
