Summer in the city…

Toronto is a pretty great place to be – occasional heatwave notwithstanding – in the summer. All kinds of festivals, food, music…right now there is a Portuguese parade happening just outside my window. Luminato coming up, TD Downtown Jazz around the corner. Impossible to keep track of everything really. Not that I have a lot of spare time. Working full-time, playing lots of shows (see the Calendar page for details), and trying to catch up with friends…not a lot of extra moments left. But even the stuff you just stumble on by accident is often fantastic. I especially like it when the streets get closed off (like yesterday on Dundas, today on Landsdowne, the occasional Sunday in Kensington Market). The more ‘pedestrian friendly’ we can make our cities the better for everyone as far as I’m concerned! On the music front personally, I’ve got 4 cool gigs coming up between Jun 24-27. Hope to see you there.
