Little Red CMW Recommendations: Wednesday

Gladstone Hotel, 11:30pm

One of our favourite singer-songwriters and performers, Reg is always great to experience. All of us try to see him whenever we can, and really, he gives us plenty of chances but we have a feeling there’s going to be something really special at this show. Fingers crossed for his “Wild Heart” cover.

Phoenix Concert Theatre, 9:30pm

Exactly how is this band not rich and famous yet? Led by the drop dead gorgeous (looks AND voice) Elise LeGrow, this band is one of Toronto’s best live bands that miraculously remains unsigned and albumless. Hopefully their opening slot with Mother Mother gives them that extra boost they deserve.

Drake Underground 10pm

It's kind of hard to remember, what with the internet have blasted away the musical boundaries between nations in so many ways, but UK bands still have to "break America". Case in point: Gabby Young. The opera singer turned weirdo indie popster has played Glastonbury and been in all the papers on the far side of the pond. But over hear, we still get to see in tiny little venues like the Gladstone.

Phoenix Concert Theatre, 11:30pm

We usually wait until Thursday before launching ourselves full force into the festival craziness, but the last couple of years CMW has been showing off with an especially tempting Wednesday night. This year, as if Whale Tooth, Gabby Young and Gentleman Reg weren't enough, they've got one of our favourite bands in Canada, Mother Mother, hitting the stage of the Phoenix. Sleep? Pfft! Who needs it?
