Toronto Urban Roots Festival

Toronto Urban Roots Fest brings a crowd to Fort York

The Toronto Urban Roots Festival's second year was less rainy and muddy than last, though it would have taken more than rain to dampen the spirits at the three day takeover of Fork York Garrison common this weekend. Neutral Milk Hotel, Gogol Bordello, Jenny Lewis, Jeff Tweedy, July Talk, Deer Tick, Violent Femmes, The Strumbellas, and more played to crowds who prefer their indie rock deeply rooted and their festival gear muted (compared last weekend's Digital Dreams fest, anyway).

From the audacious to the truly down-home, here are 50 grassy memories from TURF 2014
