Events Worth Checking Out


Believe it or not, the JUNOs aren’t just a one night event!  In fact, this year marks JUNOs 40th anniversary and to celebrate, there’s gonna be a crapload of music events all over Toronto. Here are a few you should check out:

Songwriters’ Circle: Wed. Mar 23rd, 8pm @ Massey Hall

Songs and stories from artists like Randy Bachman, Dan Hill, Luke Doucet & Royal Wood. Hosted by Johnny Reid.

JUNO Block Party: Thurs. Mar 24th, 7pm @ Metro Hall

City & Colour put on a free show with Hannah Georgas. I’d get there early.

JUNO Cup: Fri. Mar 25th, 7:30pm @ Ricoh Coliseum

What could be better than music or hockey? Musicians & ex-NHLers playing hockey together? *Swoon*
