Canadian Music Week: Jesse’s Top Picks

Canadian Music Week: Jesse’s Top Picks

7 nights, 800 bands and over 40 venues. Now in it’s 36th year, Canadian Music Week is always quite the party. We’re excited to have access to cover this festival, but even with access, it seems to be impossible to make it to see all the artists you’d want to without cloning yourself a few times. Every night of the week there’s some pretty tough choices, but here’s my top picks for the week.
