New Instagram account revisits lost Toronto club scene
Local DIY music historian / poster hoarder Daniel Tate has set up one of the most interesting Toronto Instagram accounts we've seen in a long time. The Flyer Vault (@theflyervault) documents Tate's collection of gig flyers spanning all genres from the 1980s to the mid '00s. Tate claims he has over 3,000 to get though.
It's interesting just to trace through venues (and design concepts) long past, but there's a piece of musical nostalgia for everyone here: '90s raves, rap gigs (including Wu Tang's first Toronto show), early Deadmau5 and Jr. Flo appearances, mysterious Sunnyside Pavilion r&b flyers, SARSstock, and a Dan Snaith (Caribou) poster from 2001.
Here are a few of Tate's most noteworthy flyers.
