Thread Name: Toronto 60s music scene: were you there?
Subject: RE: Toronto 60s music scene: were you there?
I grew up in Toronto in the 60's but was too young to go to the gigs (except for free outdoor ones). Someone above mentioned Kensington Market, and may be interested to know that I was at their gig last month at a venue called Howards Room(?). Keith McK was on great form, but the band was without the brass section. This was so much a part of the KM sound, songs like 'Aunt Violet's Knee' and 'I Would Be the One' didn't seem right without it.
Does anyone remember the summer '67 free Jefferson Airplane gig in Nathan Phillips Square, when a group of hippies started playing in the pool and stole the show?!
Cheers,
