Due to the ongoing social distancing mandate, all Toronto shows in the immediate future have been cancelled or postponed. Though it is not yet clear when live music will resume, it is probable that most – if not all – April shows at local venues will not be taking place. As such, instead of our typical listings of individual shows happening at specific venues, we’ve chosen instead to list all of the venues, as they currently stand, and to encourage our readers to reach out to their favourite venues directly as the current quarantine situation progresses. Much like musicians, venues are facing an unprecedented challenge, and will need major community support to re-establish themselves once we’re all allowed outside once again. Some are offering food pick-up/delivery; others are selling merch; the Tranzac, a not-for-profit, has a membership option. If you’d like to be proactive and to support a venue in some capacity, please be in touch with them to find out what you can do to help.
