Broken Social Scene, Flying Lotus and Sunset Rubdown Lead This Week's Can't Miss Concerts
As we love to do every Thursday, Exclaim! has dug through the mass of Canadian concert listings to guide you to what we like call Can't Miss Concerts. As usual, this week we've picked your best bets for gigging in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, so if you're in any of those cities have a look at what's in store.
