Looking for some new tunes to blast on Canada Day?
Below are 15 (give or take) of my favourite Canadian tracks from 2019. This list runs the gamut from rap to rock to folk and everything in between, with selections from across our diverse country: you’ll find Avril Lavigne and Carly Rae Jepsen alongside Calgary hardcore punk, BC hip hop, Montreal art rock, northern electronica, East Coast anthems, West coast rock, and much more.
Toronto surf-punks Goodbye Honolulu headlined a beach party at Ottawa’s House of TARG Friday night.
The Beaches delivered a high-octane set of glam rock at the Bronson Centre this Saturday – and in return, they left with an autographed picture of eighties sitcom star Tony Danza.
