Toronto's Drake Hotel Ropes in PS I Love You, Do Make Say Think, Brendan Canning for Boxing Week Festival

Toronto's Drake Hotel Ropes in PS I Love You, Do Make Say Think, Brendan Canning for Boxing Week Festival
Boxing week is always a bit of a drag. During the limbo between Christmas and New Year's, most schools and businesses are shut, meaning that people have nothing to do but nurse their holiday hangovers and get harassed by clearance sales. Luckily for Toronto music fans, the Drake Hotel will be hosting a concert series that's sure to alleviate the Boxing week blues.

Known as What's in the Box, the five-night run of shows will feature Canadian favourites like PS I Love You, Do Make Say Think, Ruby Coast, 84.85 and Skratch Bastid. By Divine Right will also perform, bringing their December residency at the Drake to an end. What's more, there will be a DJ set from Broken Social Scene icon Brendan Canning.

This is the fifth edition of the annual festival. In keeping with the theme of five, each night will offer five bands and admission will be just $5. You can learn more over at the Drake Hotel's website, and be sure to check out the lineup below. Almost all of the performers have been announced, but there's still a small handful to come.
