Toronto Concert Update: September, October, November

I’ve been anticipating a bumper crop of concerts in Toronto this fall, and what a harvest it’s going to be! Tune-yards, Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn and John, Ra Ra Riot… my wallet’s going to be as empty and cold as my ex-boyfriend’s parents. And so, Music Between Friends presents our fall edition of the Toronto Concert Update.

Toronto Concert Update – April, May, June, July, Aug 2011

All this talk about concerts has whet my appetite for another round of Toronto Concert Update! Put on your pumped up kicks, come down from the mountain, and stick up for yourself son, because there’s a great concert season ahead of us.

Conversely, if you’d like to read one concert-goer’s rant about the inflating price of concert tickets, read Your Favourite Band Has a New Price Tag by Shot From Guns.

PS: Born Ruffians are playing tonight, so check them out first.

PPS: The starry owl poster is from TV On The Radio’s 2009 tour with Dirty Projectors. Isn’t it rad?
