The Glorious Sons Added To CMW

We are very excited to announce a couple of exciting additions to our 10X CMW Showcase on May 8th at Adelaide Hall!

Firstly, if you missed out on tickets to see The Glorious Sons open a sold-out Danforth Music Hall for The Trews on April 26th, fear not! TGS will be joining us at CMW taking the 12:15AM slot after Ten Second Epic. We've been scheming with them to come up with some fun surprises, so be sure not to miss this set.

And secondly, we're excited to have Canada's very best party DJ, Classified's own DJ IV join us to spin throughout the night. We may have some surprises planned with him as well, which will make this a show you can't afford to miss.

Tickets are available via CMW and TicketWeb or in Toronto at Rotate This or SoundScapes. Wristbands and badges will also be accepted.

We look forward to celebrating our 10X Anniversary with you at CMW!

Black Box 10X Anniversary CMW Showcase
April 09 2014


We are extremely excited to announce our 10X Anniversary CMW Showcase! Join us on Thursday, May 8th at Adelaide Hall in Toronto where we will celebrate 10 years of Black Box including the final Toronto show for the almighty Ten Second Epic. They were the band that first put Black Box on the map back in 2007 with their album "Count Yourself In", and well, the rest is history!

Also joining us for the show are:
LYON - This Toronto-based indie songstress has had a big year with the release of her video for "Indian Summer" and is fresh off a national run with Wake Owl.

Seas - Featuring 3/4 of Moneen, Seas is the brainchild project of Chris "Hippy" Hughes. Their album "Fade Out Into The Night" has been buzzing since its release back in September, and their live performances are the highlight.

The Provincial Archive - Featuring Ryan "Pud" Podlubny of The Fullblast, this Edmonton-based indie-quartet are prepping the release of their first full length "It's All Shaken Wonder". Canadian release information coming soon...wink.

Living With Lions - Another artist who helped to put Black Box on the map, these Vancouver punk-rockers kicked up some dust with the release of their 2011 album "Holy Shit" and have been touring the world ever since. We're very excited to have them on the showcase, as part of their tour alongside Ten Second Epic.

We'll also have one more artist to announce in the coming days, so stay tuned. Oh Mama!

Tickets are on sale now at CMW.net or at Rotate This for $15 + sc. Tickets are somewhat limited so go grab yours now. CMW wristbands and badges will also be accepted.

Thanks again to everyone for their support over the last 10 years. We couldn't have done it without you. We hope you can come join us to celebrate on May 8th!
