I had hoped to see Tarantuela as well, but had to leave before they played. Both bands are excellent. Check them out if you get the chance.

I also had a couple of trips to Toronto had the time to stop at Darlington.

And on Wednesday night, Peterborough joined in with the protests against the “anti-protest” Bill 78 that even has Canada’s legal community expressing concern about the potential violation of the charter of rights.
