Canadian Music Fest ’11: Wednesday picks

Cameron Scott Fraser

Canadian Music Week launched today, giving music lovers in Toronto a lot of options over the next few days for concerts and music-centric events.

With over 150 bands and artists playing tonight alone, it’s a daunting task to pick interesting shows, so I did a bit of the work for you and picked some of my favorites. You can go through the full list of performers yourself at www.canadianmusicfest.com/artists.
