Shows To Go TO April 2012 – Music Vice’s local monthly concert guide for our home city of “TO”, Toronto

The big show this month is Red Hot Chili Peppers at the ACC, while top indie picks include Bahamas, The Drums and The Jezabels. Cancer Bats are about to drop their new record Dead Set On Living, and will play their new shit at The Horseshoe Tavern on 14 April. There is a dilemma for those of you who like your 2000s era Brit rock, with both Kaiser Chiefs and Snow Patrol playing different venues on April 17th – but Snow Patrol do play a second night. Elsewhere, The Naked And The Famous are the only reason you need to consider going to the Sound Academy this month, as they play April 5th.
