Danforth Music Hall: All About the Tunes


These days, many big-name concert tours are all about the spectacle, the pyrotechnics, and any number of multimedia enhancements. Fortunately for purists, the Danforth Music Hall continues to do things the old-fashioned way, with no-nonsense shows that are all about the tunes. This Riverdale venue has a well-earned reputation as a hotspot for cool independent acts and crystal-clear acoustics, so round up your pals and head to a live show there on your next night out with friends in Toronto. Despite its stripped-down aesthetic, you can still catch superstars like Rihanna and indulge your nostalgia for an evening with 90s favorites like Hanson. Unlike some other smaller venues, the Danforth offers a sloped floor and balcony seating, providing a view of the stage from anywhere in the house, so everybody can enjoy the show. And while the Danforth has a couple of bars located throughout the club, there are ample food and drink options in the surrounding area to keep the afterparty going as long as you like.
