Live Baby Live—June 8–13

livebabylivebanner13.jpg
Unless you live under a rock, you know that the North by Northeast Music & Film Festival is currently underway…and if you’ve stayed out past two nights until almost 5 a.m. like some Torontoist staffers, you really know it’s here. You’ll be hard pressed to find very many other music events going on this week, since almost every venue being occupied by the festival, so we suggest you just go with it and take in a bunch of bands you’ve probably never heard of. If you need some help, we’ve provided these three handy previews for you.
Other best bests include Strokes member Albert Hammond Jr., who is back in town headlining shortly after opening for Bloc Party’s recent stop here; and Rufus Wainwright performs back-to-back shows on Monday and Tuesday at the Danforth Music Hall.
