It is officially November and with that comes the cold and with the cold comes sad sad sad Torontonians. Getting out of bed in the morning gets harder because really who wants to leave the comfort of their warm duvet to fight off canadian winds?

Finding ways to not hate your life in the cold months is a sport. Requirements for activities include always being inside, no Torontonian should be succumbed to any further outdoor time than the time it takes to get from their car and/or the street car to the comfort of an indoor venue.

Concerts are always the best option to escape the cold, nothing better than being inside and enjoying some live music. The great news is that Toronto has some great shows lined up for us this month. Ch-Ch-Cheeeeck it out.

Ghost face Killah hits up Toronto on a Friday night at the end of the month and while it would be pretty hard to convince a non-rap fan to check out this show you can't argue that the man is a legend amongst MC's. He can rap faster than most even after having been around for decades.

The Arkells

Genre: Rock

Date: Saturday, November 29th

Why you're going: Not everyones cup of tea but for people who enjoy rap music, and very close bodily pushing and shoving at concerts MGK is the one for you.
