rooftop concert toronto

There's a big rooftop concert in Toronto this weekend

Puppies, BBQ, and prizes - these are all ingredients in hosting a proper outdoor neighbourhood party. But organizers of Woofest, a one-day festival in support of a variety of charities including the Moosonee Puppy Rescue, are taking their event one major step further with a rooftop concert by legendary Toronto producer and musician Daniel Lanois.

He's worked with U2, Peter Gabriel, Neil Young and Bob Dylan to name only a few in an illustrious career. On this occasion he'll share musical duties with Crooked House Road, who will also play the free festival. Odds are good that Lanois will roll out of his Temple studio before playing, located as it is just across the street from the garage.

In addition to the rooftop concert, you can also expect dog adoptions to go down at some point between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. In other words, think Beatles on the rooftop of Abbey Road or U2's video for "Where the Streets Have No Name," but with adorable dogs and meat from Barque Smokehouse.

It all goes downs Saturday, May 14 at Master Mechanic, 2 Howard Park Ave, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. For more info, check out the Toronto Woofest website.
