The Kills, the Horrors, Strung Out and King Khan in This Week's Can't Miss Concerts
Welcome to this week's Can't Miss Concerts. As usual, each Thursday we'll be picking your best bets for gigging in the cities of Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, with the dreams, hopes and aspirations of extending our coverage to other concert-going cities and towns across Canada. So, if you're in any of those three cities this weekend, take us up on our suggestions and see if we're right.
