If you’d like to submit Canadian news to AbsolutePunk.net, email me at deborah.remus@absolutepunk.net or send me a PM with “Canadian Round-Up” in the subject line. I don't check the news queue often so that's probably the best way if you want to guarantee I'll see it.

No round-up next week because I'm catching a flight to Toronto and spending a few days there. Never been before and super excited to finally see the biggest city in Canada! Feel free to recommend me stuff to do and good places to eat. I know a bunch of you are from around there.

And shows. I guess there's Incubus, but I'm still undecided. If there's any good local bands playing Saturday/Sunday/Monday let me know and maybe I'll show up.

I know! It's fairly last minute, I just happened to have 2 weeks off before heading back to school. So instead of sitting around at home I decided to book a flight to Toronto and finally check the city out.

But if I like Toronto, I'll definitely be back and hopefully we can meet then. I'd love to check out Canadian Music Week or NXNE eventually.

Yes, I am. I'm treating it like a backpacking trip, even though it's only for a few days. I've never traveled solo before and think I could use some practice. When I'm finally done school and have my degree, I'm seriously thinking of taking off for a year. Don't know exactly where yet, but I know I want to travel.

If I was renting a car I'd consider it, but since I'm not I'm just going to be hanging around downtown Toronto. Thanks for the suggestion though!

If you are in the city and need help with places to hit/need someone to show you around or even need a place to crash let me know. You gotta hit up Sneaky Dee's for sure! Food is so good.

Big Chocolate is also here on Friday Night if you want to check that out, not sure on other shows just yet.

I've already got a place to crash, but if you want to show me around I'm definitely in. I probably won't be able to make that show because I fly in that night, but anytime Saturday, Sunday or Monday would work. I have no concrete plans so it's probably best to go on your schedule, haha.
