March 18, 2013 – Last week we published our 2013 recommendations for Canadian Music Week which starts tomorrow (Tuesday) night. We went through every band to cut the list down to something reasonably manageable, but still ended up with far too many to see. There are many time slots when we want to to see five or six different bands in different venues. This is the best and worst part of CMW. Sometimes, if they’re close, like the Hideout and Bovine, you can pretty easily catch a good amount of two bands in the same time slot but it’s impossible to see everything. So ultimately, difficult decisions need to be made and it’s good to have the framework of a plan before setting out. Once at a comfortable venue, there’s always the inclination to stay there. You need to know what you might be missing elsewhere, so take a minute to print out the schedule here and highlight your own key Must See bands.
