Canadian Music Week is coming up next week. From April 18 – 23, clubs across the city will be filled by acts from across Canada and various other places and if for some reason you’re filled with indecision and unable to make your own choices, we here at Panic Manual have you covered with a selection of some of our top picks.

April 18
Not a whole lot going on for the first night, but the best bet is The Zoobombs at the Silver Dollar. Festival favourites, they always put on a fun show. Or you could also go see Papa Roach at the Danforth Music Hall as a … last resort.

April 19
The Wedding Present play the Horseshoe Tavern in support of their latest,Going, Going … along with Colleen Green, while the evocatively named The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit tour features Dune Rats, Repartee, Surf Dads, and Dead Love and will hopefully not be bullshit.

April 20
If you’re looking to see a few good bands without spending much money, Red Bull Sound Select presents Nyssa, Frigs, She-Devils and Belle Game at Costume House for only 3 buck with an RSVP. Other solid options for Thursday night include Sebadoh, Charlotte Day Wilson, Tanya Tagaq, Japanese Breakfast (starting the first night of a three night run at the Silver Dollar), and the Bonsound showcase.

April 21
A lot of good stuff happening tonight, including Greys, Japanese Breakfast, The Dandy Warhols, and Julia Jacklin (who will also be playing an instore at Soundscapes on Saturday for Record Store Day).

April 22
Buzz Records, home of some of the best bands in Toronto these days, sets up camp at Lee’s Palace for the night with a lineup featuring Pony, Twist, Vallens, Casper Skulls, and Weaves. The Garrison also has a solid lineup of Toronto bands, with Weight, Eyeballs, Teenanger, Beliefs, and HSY (presented by BUNZ for some reason – can you trade stuff to get tickets for this show?)

April 23
There’s only two acts listed for this night – Fred Penner and Explosions In The Sky. Sure, EITS probably won’t play “The Cat Came Back,” but they always put on an epic show.
