If this rain storm weather keeps up, we're all going to need some really great reasons to go outside. Well, we've got 10 amazing ones right here! Best thing is, once you're in, you'll get dry, and forget all about the weather once the brilliant music starts up.
We recommend catching Coastline Pilot and Pigeon Park at their respective last shows ever - both bands, coincidentally, are calling it quits after a decade each of creating, playing, and touring their fantastic musical careers.
Let's jump right into this puddle of shows - the talent is deep! Thanks to our city's #knowfun Selectors at Do604 for these quality choices:
