Tel: 416 598 4753's insider take:

Want to discover music's next big thing? Check out who's playing at the Horseshoe, a tavern that's been featuring live acts for 60 years. Local heroes Feist, Broken Social Scene, Metric, Death From Above 1979, and Sloane have all entertained the faithful at this venerable establishment. Tickets for most shows only sell out the day of, so get in line before 9 pm, when the doors open. Inside, it's a down-home tavern, with a stage, some booths, plenty of standing room, and a bar. With a capacity of just 350, it's about as intimate a rock 'n' roll setting as you can find in a big city.

Open Sundays through Thursdays 9 pm to 1 am, Fridays and Saturdays 9 pm to 2:30 am.
