Several of Canada’s top indie acts are joining forces this holiday season for a six-city tour of the country.
Metric, Tokyo Police Club, Sebastien Granger & The Mountains, The Dears and San Francisco’s DJ Mike Relm will hit the road in mid-December for the Jingle Bell Rock Tour.
Each show venue will feature an indoor retail village to create the feeling of an outdoor festival.
True to the holiday spirit, the tour has a charitable purpose: to raise awareness about disadvantaged youth and to benefit organizations that help get young people off the streets, including Covenant House and MacDonald Youth Services.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Saturday (Nov. 1) through Ticketmaster.
Here are the dates for the Jingle Bell Rock Tour:
Dec. 13 – Toronto, ON @ Sound Academy
Dec. 15 – Winnipeg, MB @ Burton Cummings Theatre
Dec. 16 – Saskatoon, SK @ Prairieland Park
Dec. 17 – Edmonton, AB @ Shaw Conference Centre
Dec. 19 – Calgary, AB @ MacEwan Hall
Dec. 21 – Vancouver, BC @ Vogue Theatre
