How is it half-way through May already? Is anyone else experiencing a significant feeling of whiplash? Summer has it’s sea-legs back and is off to an awesome start-so it’s time to plan ahead. After all, June will be here faster than you can say SPF 40, and you don’t want to miss any of the great events, concerts, and more happening all over the city. We present to you a She Does The City Cheat Sheet for June, so you can make sure you’re where you want to be, all month long.


TV On The Radio
Haunted indie-rock for hazy nights, surreal sunsets, and dark alleyways.
June 2nd @ Sound Academy, 11 Polson St.

Grizzly Bear
Melodic Brooklyn ensemble who define sprawling and contemplative. Their cover of ‘He Hit Me’ will make you weak in the solar plexus.
June 5th @ Phoenix Concert Theatre, 410 Sherbourne St.

The Sunday Sinners w/ Hank and Lily
The Sunday Sinners are throwback country rock from Montreal (they sound like something we would play at a barn dance in 1964), and Hank and Lily are straight-up bojangle bayou tunes. Bring your two-steppin’ shoes.
June 11th @ The Silver Dollar, 486 Spadina Ave.

Blind Pilot
Bluegrass foxes about to break your heart.
June 12th @ El Mocambo, 462 Spadina Ave.

Michael Gira
Legendary American musician, and founder of Young Gods Records, who occasionally calls up Akron/Family to be his backing band.

Pink Mountaintops
Black Mountain’s Stephen McBean helms this Vancouver outfit on the same label as Bon Iver and Okkervil River. This is our new favourite band. It’s been too long since someone wrote music this melancholy and beautiful.
June 14th @ The Horseshoe Tavern, 368 Queen St. W.

New Kids On The Block
That’s right.

    People deserve very good life and home loans or consolidation loan will make it better. Just because freedom is grounded on money state.

    That is known that cash makes people free. But how to act when one does not have money? The only one way is to get the credit loans and just consolidation loan.
