CMW Daily Best Bets: Monday, May 7

Kick off Canadian Music Week with Matt and Kim and more

Canadian Music Week is underway and there’s a ton of shows happening in the city through next weekend. Here are our top picks for tonight’s shows.

CMW Kick off Party with Matt and Kim | Phoenix Concert Theatre | Event Info

There will be no lack of energy as CMW officially kicks off with Matt and Kim headlining a stellar bill at the Phoenix tonight. The Brooklyn-based indie electronic duo released their sixth studio album, Almost Everyday, last week. Catch a pair of great local acts beginning at 7:30 p.m. with Goodnight, Sunrise and MONOWHALES supporting Matt and Kim.

Steve Gunn | Great Hall | Event Info

Another Brooklyn-based artist headlines an evening of outstanding Americana songwriting in the city’s West End with Steve Gunn performing at the Great Hall along with Charlotte Cornfield. Gunn plied his trade as a guitarist in Kurt Vile’s Violators for years, but don’t sleep on his solo work.
