Canadian Music Week had revelers up and out throughout various venues in Toronto. With a newly announced extended last call till 4:00AM for the festivities, Toronto had much to celebrate. The City boasted local and international acts. Venues from the storied Horseshoe Tavern to the Rec Room provided patrons with much entertainment to choose from. Alt-Indie band Judah and the Lion kicked things off at the cozy venue, the Hideout for invited guests and industry personnel. Lead singer, Judah had the crowd on their toes including a cover of the Blink-182 classic “All the Small Things”.

Throughout the city, venues were bustling with small acts among the leading acts the festival had to offer including the Elwins, and Dave Grohl speaking at the conference portion of the week.
