toronto rooftop concert

There's a big rooftop concert in Toronto this month

Toronto is getting a unique rooftop concert and party later this month. On August 26 starting at at 9 p.m.,you can be among those who crowd the rooftop just behind the Pizza Pizza at Queen and Lisgar. Climb up the residential rooftop, cough up $10 and kick back with beer from Kensington Brewing Company and music from some great local songwriters.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The show has now been canceled. There have been quite a few comments/accusations that we were in the wrong for promoting this event. To be clear, we initially heard about the event when it was being promoted on Facebook. We reached out to one of the organizers for more details. The organizer sent us the details and also the above photo to be used in this article. The accusation that somehow the organizers were not aware that we were going to write about the event OR did not want us to write about the event does not measure up to the facts.

Julie Doiron, Luka and Nick Ferrio will all perform. The concert is being organized by Toronto/Saskatoon concert promotion company Gladeye along with Electric Fetus events.

Think of this like that infamous Beatles show on top of Abbey Road, but being up on the roof with the musicians, and a lot less electricity.

Gladeye are experts at smaller, intimate venue shows like this, so expect a laid back time. Also expect to see more events from the promotions company as they hope to make connections between Ontario and Western Canada strong through shows like these.
