Sign Of The Times

The best seller at the U2 concert last Friday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto was one of The Joshua Tree tour t-shirts that showcased how an old song can remain relevant today. As music fans know, the album opens with the song “Where The Streets Have No Name.” The opening lines of the song […]

Tonight in Toronto

Some thoughts from last year’s Ottawa Bluesfest for you today. The Lumineers are performing tonight in Toronto, opening up for U2. I saw them last summer and was, as you will see below, intrigued by the interaction between band and audience. I thought it appropriate to repeat those observations today, and I am kind of […]
