CMW Daily Best Bets: Wednesday, May 9

BJM, punk legends Slow highlight a busy Wednesday

Fresh off an emotionally-charged set from The Used on Tuesday night, business really picks up on Wednesday. From punk legends Slow, a Buzz Records Showcase, and local acts Modern Space and Birds of Bellwoods, here are our top picks for tonight’s shows.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre | Danforth Music Hall | Event Info

Over the course of nearly 20 albums, The Brian Jonestown Massacre have become one of the most unpredictable live bands on the planet. The one thing you can bank on for tonight at the Danforth, is a helluva rock show. Catch frontman Anton Newcombe and Co. for 9 p.m.


The Return of Slow | Phoenix Concert Theatre | Event Info

Seminal Vancouver punk band Slow band is back. The band has been readying its first new material since 1986 in recent months, and they’re supported by The Dirty Nil and Single Mothers, so this is a must-see event on the CMW schedule.


Modern Space and Birds of Bellwoods | Horseshoe Tavern | Event Info

A pair of our local favourites highlight a great night set for the Horseshoe Tavern, as Modern Space and Birds of Bellwoods headline an evening with Sc Mira, Valley, and Nefe.


Buzz Records Showcase | Longboat Hall | Event Info

Keep rocking into the early hours of the morning with a great lineup at Longboat Hall as part of Buzz Records’ Showcase. Tough Age, Peeling, New Fries, and Greys are on the bill, with doors set for 7 p.m.
