The must-see concerts in Toronto this May are all about experimental beats and female power. Festival fans, rev up for the return of Canadian Music Week, Electric Island and CBC Music Festival. There’s also Jorja Smith, HAIM, Panda Bear and more to look forward to.
This UK singer-songwriter has Drake's stamp of approval, but even without high-profile fans it’s obvious why the soulful 20-year-old’s music is getting tons of attention. And why she’s already sold out two nights at the Opera House.
California’s biggest sister act might still be recovering from opening for Beyonce at Coachella, but I'm confident they'll be at the top of their game for their show at Massey Hall. Especially when they have energetic rapper Lizzo in support.
Almost nine years after her first solo outing as Fever Ray, Karin Dreijer took the persona out of storage for last year’s acclaimed electro adventure, "Plunge". She’s now taking Fever Ray on tour with a stop at REBEL.
A hardcore crew from Baltimore, War On Women makes feminist punk that is crucial listening in today’s political climate. After being included in a major New York Times music feature, their profile seems poised to rise.
While Death From Above 1979, Wolf Parade and many other acts from Canada’s thriving mid-00s indie rock days capitalize on reunion fever, this B.C. group is going the other way. After 17 years, this will be their last tour before disbanding.

The metal legends are calling it quits (I guess when your frontman starts posting implicitly pro-Trump Instas, it’s a sign that your time as progressive music icons is over). Their stacked farewell includes Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament.
The rising R&B star has alluded that more good things are on their way with a brand new track. In honour of his recently adopted dog, he's emBARKing (sorry!) on “The Roxy Tour” where a portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to local animal shelters.
