Purity Ring, Bleached, the Burning Hell, the Highest Order and Ghost B.C. Lead This Week's Can't Miss Concerts
Published Apr 25, 2013Winter is long gone, and with the weather getting better, your excuses to lounge on the couch binging on episodes of whatever show you are currently into are slowly losing credibility. Luckily, with spring comes the concert season, and below are a list of shows from April 25 - May 2 that you can happily get off the couch for.
Bleached didn't show much love to Canada on their North American tour to support Ride Your Heart, but luckily, even though the tour's finale is quickly approaching, there are still two Canadian stops left. This week's show is in Toronto.
4/25 Toronto, ON - The Silver Dollar Room
The Burning Hell
The Burning Hell have put together a short Canadian tour for their latest album, People, which was released last week. Now here's your chance to hear it live (but only for a short time).

4/27 Peterborough, ON - The Spill

These are their last set of Canadian dates before they head for the UK, so catch them while you can.
