Seeing Wolf Alice in a venue like Town Ballroom for eighteen bucks already felt like winning – and this was before it was announced that The Big Pink would open all dates on this leg of their US tour.
The sold-out crowd at Casino Rama Entertainment Centre was treated to a solid 70 minutes of vintage Headstones who brought along the equally enthralling openers, Crown Lands.
We hit Toronto’s Velvet Underground on April 6, 2017, and saw Art of Anarchy deliver a powerhouse performance following an equally solid set from local rockers Never Say Die, with an appearance from current Three Days Grace frontman, Matt Walst (ex-My Darkest Days).
Recently Converge came to Toronto and brought one of the very best hardcore bands in existence with, Loma Prieta. After their opening set at the Mod Club, Loma Prieta played an after party show at local DIY venue The Soybomb. Loma were the secret special guest headliners playing with several amazing local Toronto hardcore bands. As jaw dropping as it was to see Loma Prieta up on a bigger stage there just isn’t really anything like seeing them in a smaller and more casual space. The experience seems so much more powerful and exciting than in a large venue.
