Canadian Music Week is just around the corner…

It’s that time of year again … Canadian Music Week!

The annual music, film and comedy festival will hit Toronto in just under a month and with it will come over 950 bands. Again, that’s 950 bands!

The festival takes over venues all across the city of Toronto, starting on March 19 and going until the 24.

Among the hundreds and hundreds of bands, here is who I am most looking forward to seeing:

Metric, Boy, USS, Diamond Rings, Monster Truck and my favourite thrash punk sweat show rockers, The Dirty Nil.

See, it gets filthy…. and loud. It’s awesome.


You can check out for the other 944 bands.

So as an avid music fan and music journalist, this festival for me is the festivals of all festivals. Where else in the world can you see hundreds of bands in your home city and drink until the wee hours of the morning? Nowhere, that’s where.

Sock Monkey Sound followers, get ready, we have a team of about eight writers (including myself), photographers and videographers to bring you the best of the festival. We wont’ sleep, and neither should you.

So remember to check out our coverage during the festival. You won’t be disappointed. We might though, when our ears bleed and livers explode.
