It’s Polaris Music Prize night. A band, or a performer, will walk home with the $50,000 novelty cheque for creating the best Canadian album of the year, based on artistic merit. The gala will take place at the Carlu in Toronto.
Take a final look at the 2016 Polaris Music Prize short list.
Andy Shauf, Black Mountain, Basia Bulat, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jessy Lanza, U.S. Girls and White Lung will be performing tonight. Grimes and Kaytranada, who are also shortlist nominees, will be attending. PUP won’t be part of the ceremony since the band is in the middle of an European tour.
