Published Feb 17, 2010February's barely half over, but so far it's been a busy month for Canadian concertgoers. Head over to the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed section to check out reviews of some of the most recent shows from across the country.
Brooklyn's garage pop princesses Vivian Girls did their thing at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret, while on the other side of the country the Magnetic Fields and Laura Barrett performed at one of Toronto's best music venues, the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
Laura Barrett went on to play one of Toronto's Wavelength 500 shows a few days later, in what was likely the first time anyone has played a kalimba at Sneaky Dee's. Also on the roster for the concert series were Bruce Peninsula, Holy Fuck and the Constantines.
Charles Spearin worked overtime (as usual) at Calgary's Republik, playing a bill that featured Do Make Say Think, Years and the Happiness Project. And last but not least, Hillside Inside took place earlier this month, turning Guelph into a day-long Canadian indie-music haven with sets from Hawksley Workman, Owen Pallett, Woodhands and Basia Bulat.
