THE ALARM: WORLD TOUR 2018 @ Horseshoe Tavern (Nov 15, 2018)

Image: Donald Lem + U360M It has been over 33-years since The Alarm last visited Toronto. After the original Lee’s Palace date was postponed in July, the faithful “Alarm Army” stood fast, lined up at the new venue, the legendary Horseshoe Tavern.   Not discouraged by the wet, cold snowy November night, the well-behaved (you’d be […]


PHIL COLLINS: NOT DEAD YET LIVE @ Scotiabank Arena (Oct 11, 2018)

A rare appearance by pop music icon Phil Collins in Toronto aptly titled as “Not Dead Yet Live” graced the newly minted Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canda Centre).       Mining an enormous music catalogue must’ve been an arduous task for Collins, wisely he chose a few Genesis memories for the faithful, including “Missed […]


NEW ORDER – North American Live 2018 @ Budweiser Stage (Aug 30, 2018)

Industrial bleak sombre synths, lifted by rhythmic machine-like drum beats that cut through the bleakness of sad, disparaging vocals.

Visiting Toronto’s Budweiser Stage, it was another opportunity for […]

Corgan started off the show with an acoustic version of  “Disarm”, a possible tie to his solo acoustic tour, aptly titled, WPC (WILLIAM PATRICK CORGAN) – The Ogilala Tour. […]


ERASURE | World Be Gone Tour @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre (July 24, 2018)

Synthpop vanguardist duo Erasure visited Toronto, promoting their latest release with their worldwide “World Be Gone Tour”. Openers Reed and Caroline introduced themselves to the Erasure faithful with a quirky New Wave set. A perfect reflection of suburbia isolation, blight emptiness, depressing lonely subdivisional sadness, for many adolescent basement dwellers  to relate. Reed and Caroline made […]


WPC (WILLIAM PATRICK CORGAN) – The Ogilala Tour @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre (Oct 20, 2017)

Complexity, Simplicity, Vulnerability, Intensity, & Artistry. Chameleon-like Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins) shedded his well-known nom-de-plume “Billy” to a more mature sounding William Patrick Corgan (WPC) for his latest release “Ogilala”. Playing in the cozy moody dim lit confines of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, WPC first set focused entirely (from start-finish) his latest Rick Rubin […]
