This week's entertainment picks: Leonard Cohen, Mark Lanegan

It's an incredibly strong week for live shows in Toronto.  Here are my picks, but you really can't go wrong with whatever you choose:

Leonard Cohen, Massey Hall, May 14
A Canadian legend and a Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer, there's not much selling I need to do when it comes to Leonard Cohen.

Mark Lanegan, Lee's Palace, May 15
Through Screaming Trees, Soulsavers, Gutter Twins, and his work with Isobel Campbell, the one constant with Mark Lanegan has been that voice.  It's never more powerful than it is in his solo work.
