As if we weren’t going to be distracted enough by the dozens of screenings and parties, TIFF has just announced a killer lineup of Canadian indie acts to accompany the festival’s film events. Clubland’s Roosevelt Room will be transformed into the Festival Music House starting September 13 for the official three-day musical component. The venue is billed as a spot where Hollywood execs can scope out Canadian talent.

Montreal rockers Stars headline the opening-night show, followed by City and Colour on September 14 and Tragically Hip front man Gord Downie on September 15. Other notable acts that will be performing include Chilly Gonzales, Basia Bulat, Tokyo Police Club, Hawksley Workman and Zeus. Like almost all of the fun stuff at TIFF, the concerts are by invitation only, but Workman’s cameo in Score: A Hockey Musical is for all to see.
