Big On Bloor Festival, Bloor St.W. Toronto August 23, 2015

This was one of my favourite festivals this summer.DSC_0266 DSC_0269

Firstly because it was within walking distance but also because I have always loved this part of Bloor St.. In all of the urban renewal I hope these shops are kept in tact.

I got the chance to catch a set by the Devah Quartet, a Toronto based electric string quartet with a drummer that delighted the crowd with some progressive and original rock tunes! DSC_0288 DSC_0292Well worth the listen.DSC_0343 DSC_0279 DSC_0300 An extremely enjoyable event and everyone there certainly had fun as well. As always enjoy Toronto !~
