It seems pretty appropriate that we just had Groundhog Day, given that we’re feeling a little bit like Bill Murray looking at the concert listings this week. Not only is there very little going on, but most of the bands who are playing seem to be here every week (Apostle of Hustle, The Tragically Hip, Hostage Life, Friendly Rich). Thus, we have nothing left to say about them! So if you’ve already seen these shows, it is advised that you take this time to rest up because the end of February and month of March are going to be insane for loads of high quality live music.
If there’s a great show we missed, let us know in the comments. Tips and recommendations can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
