Although it looked for quite some time like it would never see the light of day in Toronto area theatres, actor turned filmmaker Paul Dano’s exceptional directorial debut Wildlife, one of the best films of 2018, finally gets its proper due with a run at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
My first night at Canadian Music Fest included one band that I knew I couldn’t miss. At midnight on Thursday, March 21 at The Great Hall, Wildlife were set to take the stage, and based on what I had heard of their album, I knew it was a show I wanted to check out. As it turned out, they were preceded by three acts that showed a lot of promise–Mo Kenny, Mad Ones, and PS I Love–so, I decided to start CMF this year by sticking with one venue.
Okay, so the weather outside may make it feel otherwise, but spring has sprung, at least as much as it’s going to spring for now, and that means one thing for me this week: the Canadian Music Festival.
Toronto rockers Wildlife have released the first track, “Born to Ruin,” from their upcoming album, …On The Heart, which arrives on February 26.
