CMW Daily Best Bets: Tuesday, May 8

The Used highlight a busy Tuesday at CMW

Canadian Music Week kicked off on Monday with Matt and Kim headlining a high-energy show at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. We’re on to day No. 2, here are our top picks for tonight’s shows.

The Used | Phoenix Concert Theatre | Event Info

Post-hardcore veterans The Used headline an evening at The Phoenix which also features Red Sun Rising and The Fever 333. Expect an ample serving of newer tunes from last year’s The Canyon and the anthems of your youth.


Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever | Garrison | Event Info

Melbourne, Australia–based indie rock outfit Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are set to release their debut full-length record Hope Downs on June 15 via Sub Pop. Melbourne is producing some of the best new indie and alternative bands out there, and if their latest single “Talking Straight” is any indication, then quintet is about to make a considerable splash on the international scene. They’re supported by Kiwi Jr and Ducks Unlimited at the Garrison Tuesday.
