Published Feb 25, 2011Here at Exclaim!, we've all been getting ready for Canadian Music Week, which will take place in Toronto from March 9 to 13 and includes a massive list of performers, films, lectures and even an awards ceremony. Amongst all the madness, Toronto's Audio Blood has also lined up its own impressive-looking CMW showcase.
The showcase, which for the purposes of full disclosure is being sponsored by Exclaim!, will take place at Sneaky Dee's on March 10. The stacked bill features a whopping seven bands, with the doors opening at 8 p.m. and the last act going on at 2:30 a.m. On deck for the night are a number of artists from the Audio Blood roster, including Huron, Hands & Teeth, Sandman Viper Command and Golden Isles, among others. And all this costs just $10. See the Facebook event for full details.
In addition to the showcase, Audio Blood's artists have plenty of other shows all week at CMW. See the schedule here.
To build hype for the busy week, Audio Blood has released mixtape featuring songs from 14 different bands on its roster that will be playing at the festival. Download it for the price on an email address from Audio Blood's website (it's in the sidebar on the right hand side).
