Who: Sleater-Kinney
When: Monday, March 2
Why: All bow down to the rock goddesses that are Sleater-Kinney and one of the most anticipated reunions ever!
Where: Sound Academy

Who: St. Vincent
When: Tuesday, March 3 and Wednesday, March 4
Why: Because it’s yet another goddess gracing Toronto this week. Although both shows appear to be sold out, check Collective Concerts’ social media, since there *might* be some tickets released day of.

Who: Moon Duo
When: Thursday, March 5
Why: Guaranteed psychedelic fun

When: Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Where: The Great Hall

Who: Grimes
