    Go up to the Orbit Room on College Street. It is owned by Alex Lifeson and it usually has really good live music.


    Or for closer, go to the Rivoli or the Horseshoe on Queen Street. Rivoli has pretty good food too.

    Also, check out Songbird Music and Capsule music. Both on Queen St and usually have a good used gear selection.

    the orbit room is very cool - been there, and even made the anniversary party they had at that venue way up on yonge.

    we used to go to toronto every 6 mos or so, we loved it, but because of finances we haven't been able to go in a few years. this is the first time in a while, and i'm really psyched. i like the cold :D
     
  8. Oh man, I would come see you again but I moved 4 months ago to Pembroke Ont.

    Sorry man. I want to play your Conklin again.... I mean I'd love to chill with you.

    Have fun in the T dot.


    Not the same reason for comming to Toronto this time I hope

    I used to live there. I am not sure what you are into, but I know the city fairly well..... there is always the Hockey Hall of Fame.. or the Bata Shoe Museum!

    heh heh. actually i really want to go check out points west in canuckistan, especially vancouver. i've been to montreal and quebec before, absolutely loved it.

    i guess we just really know toronto, and it satisfies our hankerings for big city order and culture that we're missing here in hotlanta.
     
  15. See, there's no one from Toronto on these boards! Montreal, on the other hand.. ;) Seriously, come by sometime and we'll have a mini get-together with Sargebaker, the Ombudsman, Jazzin', and the rest of the Montreal crew.

    I know someone's already said it, but Steve's Music and the 12th Fret are great stores.

    Peace,

    The "Van" is a really nice city. Clean and Beautiful. Victoria and the northern parts of that island are just perfect.

    I have seen more of Canada than most Canadians. Ask away.......

    Banff and PEI are gorgeous places as well.

    This I actually might be able to make as I have a long weekend coming up.

    What's your schedule going to be like?

    Antipop you're in Pembroke now? Drop me a line if you ever stop into the "big city" ;)
