There are certain venues in the city that brings a sense of discovery and nostalgia. The Horseshoe Tavern is one of the first venues that I saw shows of local artists. It is also the venue that I have discovered many new favourite bands and artists. It was a full circle moment to capture some moments from the A Fellow Ship and Good Kid show. Since the 'Shoe was close to Rivoli, I also hopped over to the Brampton showcase and caught Selena Dhillon's performance. Selena's voice captured the room and shared snippets of her journey through words that weaved between her songs.Read More

When I was thirteen, I had a season pass to Ontario Place and for that summer I visited the site almost every single day. From mini golf to water park to log ride and everything in between, I can still remember all their details vividly. Since 2011, the space has been left idle and because city officials have yet to commit to a plan for its future, so nature still reigns over the site and the gates remain locked. Like other Torontonians, I was anxious and worried that I won’t be able to set foot on the grounds again. Luckily, artists and curators Rui Pimento and Layne Hinton was inspired by the site’s rough around the edges un-manicured state and they envisioned a transformative art experience to be held in Ontario Place. Along with a team of artists, musicians, organizers, and partners, Rui and Layne brought in/future to life. The ten day festival runs until September 25th and is worth a visit or ten. Get ready for mesmerizing art installations, captivating musical performances and fun food trucks.Read More
There are countless hours that I have spent with CBC radio in the background. From finishing up projects, to doing chores or getting a taste of home when abroad, I loved knowing that I was supporting Canadian talents. But beyond the pride, the music is what made me want to nerd out and listen to CBC all the time. So when I heard about the CBC Music Festival, I jumped at the tickets. Seeing the bands in person and getting to listen to them live? How can I say no!
I do have to warn you, this post will get way to sentimental, a whole lot of emotions were felt and I have to share it somehow.Read More
