on February 11, 2013

Shawn Desman - Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day weekend kicks off this week, and if you don’t think that just flowers and chocolates will cut it this year, there are some great concerts in Toronto that you can still grab last-minute tickets for.

1. The Tragically Hip (February 14 – Air Canada Centre)
I don’t know if you would define your relationship as tragic and I am not judging, but Canada’s favorite crooners are back at the ACC (40 Bay St., Toronto ON) on Valentine’s Day. The Kingston rockers will bring all of their classics including “Ahead By A Century,” “My Music At Work” and “Bobcaygeon” along with selections from their new album Now For Plan A. Tickets are available HERE

2. Shawn Desman (February 14 – The Living Arts Centre Mississauga)
Shawn Desman is almost as Canadian as maple syrup and I am sure he will make the special girl in your life melt in her chair. He plays the Mississauga Living Arts Centre (4141 Living Arts Dr., Mississauga, ON) and it makes for the perfect Valentine’s Day date. Tickets are available HERE

3. The Wavelength Festival (February 14 –17 – Various Venues)
