The Horseshoe announces more big 70th anniversary shows

Plus more just-announced shows, including Nicolas Jaar, Hanson, Biblical, the final Death 2 T.O. Halloween show and more


The Horseshoe continues to go big on its 70th anniversary celebrations with its just-announced second wave of performers. They’ve already announced Billy Bragg, DOA, the Pursuit of Happiness and more, but this new wave fills in the lineup with some more bold-type names. 

Chief among them (to us at least) are the Constantines, playing a two-night “underplay residency” on December 15 and 16. The Toronto-via-Guelph 00s indie heroes, who reunited in 2014, continue to connect the legendary venue to various eras of Toronto’s rock past. 

That’s even more explicit with the booking of Max Weinberg’s Jukebox on October 10. The E Street Band drummer and former Conan O’Brien bandleader will let the audience create the set from a long list of songs at the side of the stage, spanning decades. It’s a bit like a karaoke bar, but in reverse.

Also joining the nostalgia fest are alt-country outfit Skydiggers, who will play their annual X-Mas concerts on December 22 and 23.

There’s also room for some youngsters (relatively speaking), including local roots-rockers Sun K, who play a no-cover night on October 11, New Brunswick banjo-thrasher Lisa Leblanc on November 16 and indie rockers Fast Romantics on November 18. Find ’em all in this week’s Just Announced Toronto shows. 

At the Horseshoe (370 Queen West), September 26 to December 31. Ticket prices vary. ticketfly.com, rotate.com, soundscapesmusic.com.
