If big band and rockabilly get your toes a-tappin’, we have a treat for you this weekend: Harbourfront is hosting Swingin’ Saturday, which involves a number of demonstrations, lessons, and performances on all things swing. Enjoy Natalia Grane’s Lindy Hop Revolution, That Swing! with Shannon Refvik, and Dancin’ Through the Decades with the Toronto All-Star Big Band and the Bees Knees Dance School.
Psst… We have some classified information for all you music snobs who like discovering bands before everyone else finds out about them. This weekend, the SoundClash Music Award will be going down at Harboufront, boasting performances by five shortlisted, soon-to-be-huge bands. Catch CANVAS, Keita Juma, and Pale Eyes on Saturday, followed by DATU and Maneli Jamal on Sunday. Vote for your favourite act, and you could help them win up to $10,000 in cash and prizes, and the title of 2014′s SoundClash Music Award winner.
