This week's entertainment picks: Hot Chip, Iron Maiden w. Alice Cooper

There's a lot going on in town this week.  Festival galore hit us with varying degrees of interest.  For example, there's not a single exciting act on this year's edition of the Warped Tour, while only the secondary acts on Edgefest are worth seeing.

Iron Maiden w. Alice Cooper, Molson Ampitheatre, Jul 13
The one great thing about summer is it gives mullet-wearers from Oshawa a chance to slide out from underneath their Mustangs and come into the city to get their metal on.  Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper are a great excuse to do just that.

Hot Chip, Sound Academy, Jul 15
Laid-back British electronic act Hot Chip will get you into a nice relaxed groove.
