February 12th and 13th, 2017

$26.00 | 19+

If you haven’t listened to the Capsule podcast in recent months, you may have missed Mehek gushing over this super talented Brit. He first made people notice working with SBTRK but last year he was on Kanye, Solange and Frank Ocean’s records. Now is his time to shine. 

Tove Lo @ Massey Hall

February 17th, 2017

$45.50 | All Ages

I’m still absolutely befuddled that Massey Hall booked Tove Lo and that she agreed to play there. Her music is pure dance pop and Massey is a seated (sometimes stuffy) venue. Either way her last album Lady Wood was pretty amazing.

Hamilton Leithauser @ The Opera House

February 13th, 2017

$20.00 | 19+

The former Walkmen frontman released one of last year’s best non-pop pop albums as he collaborated with former Vampire Weekend tastemaker Rostam Batmanglij. While Hamilton will be touring alone, hearing their songs live will be a treat.

Japandroids @ Danforth Music Hall

February 17th and 18th, 2017

$32.75-$35.25 | 19+

The Vancouver duo has come back with a vengeance after a four-year break between albums. Playing two sold out shows at Danforth will make for a sweaty rocking time.

Run the Jewels @ Danforth Music Hall

February 19th, 2017

$46.00 | All Ages

Rap’s best duo struck again with their third album dropping for free on Christmas day. Killer Mike seems to rap better with his back up against the wall and political tension all around while El-P has further refined the RTJ sound as the baddest group around.

Thundercat @ Danforth Music Hall

February 28th, 2017

$30.25 | 19+

Many people just know him as Kendrick Lamar’s bassist or Flying Lotus cohort, but his music will make you a believer. His outfit game is also a must watch as you never know what he will make cool next.
