Dragonette brings Bodyparts to the Danforth Music Hall

Posted by Melody Brown / May 12, 2013

DragonetteThe Danforth Music Hall was nowhere near full on Friday night when Toronto's own pop 'n roll band Dragonette hit the stage. Luckily, those few who chose to brave the rain and miss the last period of Game 5 were ready to party.

New LEGOLAND features stunning models of Toronto

Posted by Melody Brown / March 11, 2013
