I would urge you to plan to spend some time in Toronto per se, and I don't mean East York. Beaches is a real nice area if there's any B&B's there. Heather Fielding lives (near) there. It's the part of town where there's a friendly, busy neighbourhood main street (Queen West) only a block from the Lake Ontario beaches.
For music look up whats happening at Hugh's Room and the Tranzac Club when you're there. (The Tranzac is kind of an anomaly; it's more a music-scene hangout than a home for expat Aussies anymore.)
And get a rental car and drive up through the Muskokas and Haliburtons, perhaps Algonquin Park, if you want real fall colours.
It's a lovely time of year really when the weather cooperates (a pretty good chance).
