CMW – Canadian Music Week is back in 2017 with hundreds of bands including 54/40, Good Charlotte and Melissa Etheridge.
As Canada’s largest new music festival, CMW combines as a music, comedy, and film festival, along with hosting a conference as well as a trade and award show. This marks CMW’s 35th year! CMW takes over Toronto’s downtown live music venues putting on artist showcases and concerts of all sizes.
This year CMW brings punkabilly to the forefront with an artist showcase featuring Toronto’s punk favourite Lauren Spike. Lauren Spike will be preforming a 40 minute set with her band which will consist of new, unreleased songs. Emerging from the punk scene of Toronto, Ontario, Lauren Spike came out with her debut EP “Devil Skull” in June 2015. Stand out tracks include “Devil’s Girl” and “Bloodsucker” which both have remarkable D.I.Y. videos on Youtube. Embodying the D.I.Y. (Do-It-Yourself) punk spirit, Lauren Spike has toured Canada, including a notable performance at Amnesia Rockfest 2016 – Canada’s largest music festival. The music of Lauren Spike appeals to punk, grunge, psychobilly and rock fans alike.
Show up to the Bovine Sex Club (542 Queen Street West – near Queen & Bathurst) at 10pm sharp on April 18th to see this showcase.
Tickets available on the CMW website.
