Live Baby Live – Week of Oct. 30

Pedals by Carrie Musgrave
Busy, busy week here in Toronto. There are so many good shows to go to, that it’s quite possible to be out almost every night. For example, tonight is so chock full of great shows that it’s a shame they weren’t spread out better over the week…we’d love to see most of these acts! Death Cab For Cutie are in town tonight and tomorrow, and according to the Toronto Sun they will be doing it up Halloween-style. Torontoist has tix for tonight’s show, so hopefully it will be spooktacular fun for all on both nights.
Later this week you can check out some old skool punk when The Misfits and friends hit The Funhaus for Fiendfest. Five bands in total, and all look promising if you’re into that scene.
And finally, our sympathies go out to those who’ve been struggling with whether to go to Elton John or Meat Loaf on Saturday. Tough call. Our suggestion? The Wiggles. We hear they’re actually pretty rockin’.
Same old, same old…if you know of a great show that we’re missing, let us know. Just please don’t let it be tonight, since there’s already too much goodness to choose from.
