YYZ Best Bets (Week of April 7)

Indie88's picks for the week

There are a bunch of good shows in Toronto this week. If you were lucky enough to score tickets to one of the three sold out National shows at Massey Hall then you’re in for a treat, if you didn’t grab a ticket then fear not – you can still win some! You can also catch London Grammar, The Hold Steady, and more in town this. Plus there are some neat events worth checking out if you’re into fine cheeses or wanting to explore Toronto’s hidden treasures.

Have a great week.
