With the start of the new year, many exLordeciting things are happening, and or music lovers, this means more concerts to go to! Although you may already know about the big artists coming to town (like Miley Cyrus), I know there are some of you out there who also appreciate music from artists who aren’t as big—meaning you may not have necessarily heard that they’re playing a show in Toronto this year. To ease your efforts, I’ve put together a small list of some of the shows that have been announced so far that I’m most excited for this year.




Neil Young – Jan 12 @ Massey Hall

Jake Bugg – Jan 14 @ Sound Academy

Pixies – Jan 15 @ Massey Hall

Neutral Milk Hotel – Jan 19/20 @ Kool Haus

Elton John – Feb 6 @ Air Canada Centre
