March 25 2013 – Canadian Music Week (CMW) and in particular their Canadian Music Fest 2013 offered Toronto 6 days of glorious music. We had a wonderful ride and although our coverage focused almost strictly on rock music and movies we discovered some new excellent music during our journeys at CMW. Here is a recap of all our activities and our closing thoughts.
