A charity concert will be held tonight (March 8) in Toronto to benefit the victims of a tragic downtown fire that left a 22-year-old man dead, another severely injured and others homeless.


The grief that struck the city in the wake of the deadly March 4 fire touched three local indie bands, Lambsbreath, Numb Tongues and Benjamin M. Doerksen, who have banded together to perform at the fundraising concert. 

Proceeds from the pay-what-you-can concert hosted by Indie Week at The Painted Lady on Ossington Street will go towards supporting residents impacted by the deadly fire. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the concert is scheduled to run through to 9 p.m.

The fundraising concert date was set after Toronto firefighters early on March 4 were called to two low-rise buildings at 160 and 162 Bathurst Street to battle a five-alarm fire. – Find out further detail by reading Etan Vlessing’s news feature on the SamaritanMag website.

Happy Anniversary, Archie: Alvvays' Debut Record Gets a 10th Birthday Re-Issue

The Canadian jangle pop group's first album will be available on a new cerulean blue vinyl with an unearthed bonus track, as well as the ten original songs — including breakout single 'Archie, Marry Me' — that launched their career in 2014.

A major Canadian indie rock album turns 10 today (July 22), and the band is celebrating with a special re-issue.

Alvvays' self-titled debut helped the group break through on an international scale, propelled by jangly guitars, aloof vocals and an expertly catchy single. "Archie, Marry Me," with its soaring chorus and pleading lyrics, became a wedding song for a generation of ambivalent millennials, earnest and sardonic at the same time.
