YYZ Best Bets (Week of April 21)

Indie88's picks for the week ahead

Lots of live music in Toronto this week: Ingrid Michaelson, Black Lips, Young Rival, Teenage Kicks, The Trews, and more are taking stages at venues across the city. If you’re craving pizza, head to Christie Pits on Friday, they’ll have the wood-burning oven fired up. And if you’re feeling guilty about all the pizza, The Green Living Show is going on all weekend so you can get back on track to health and wellness.
