Top 5 shows of the weekend

There are plenty of options for Halloween this weekend, so we’re sticking with the regular format here this week, rather than fill it with bands playing cover sets or other such quirky seasonal stuff. No, if you’ve come this far into the week and still haven’t decided if dressing up as Pizza Rat is the thing to do or not, chances are you just aren’t that into this whole halloween thing anyway. Here we are with some options for those of us looking to keep it regular.

Top 5 shows of the weekend

As enjoyable as CMJ is (see our review), being back on a more regular routine is highly comforting. Although as apartment heaters begin creaking back to life, the change of seasons seems to be taking it’s toll on immune systems though, so be careful out there and drink your fair share of hot toddies or scotch to kill all those bugs.

It’s the weekend before CMJ, so it would seem like a good time for a live music fan to relax and charge their batteries. However, this is one of the strongest weekends for shows I can think of this year, don’t consider this a top 5, they are all deserving of the number one spot.

I can’t say there hasn’t been an air of complete normality this week, but what that really means is stuff like this, businesses treating staff like crap, a new music venue opening and anticipation of sandwiches. I’m going to keep this brief because I had an important exam today (it’s cool, I passed), but it’s the quality of the acts themselves that matter!

It seems like a lot of the local news is on a bit of a downer this week, neighbourhood bars are closing while Starbucks gets an alcohol licence, and then of course, there is this; it’s enough to make you question humanity. However, just like the fact that we’re actually living in the most peaceful time in human history is a hard one to accept before looking at the cold, hard data, this city we call home still offers great excitement as opposed to a gloom of lost opportunity. With plenty of summertime left to enjoy/endure, make the most of it by catching some shows!
