Sunday brought us the Temperance Movement show at the Toronto Festival of Beer. Still very hot and humid, but thankfully mostly overcast so walking around outside was that much more bearable.
Mizz J and I left for Toronto as late as possible. Timing was perfect actually. We arrived about an hour before the band went on, which left us just enough time to spend our beer tokens (came with admission, along with a sampling mug) on tasting some new libations:
And time to fuel up, thanks to the the Fidel Gastro food truck:
Everyone has a VW hippie van, it seems. I see these things everywhere. Except my driveway, that is. 🙁
We checked out the merch tent, of course. But alas, as with Macca, the t-shirts did not inspire me to get out my wallet. How hard is it to design an attractive band shirt, I ask you? Apparently too hard for either of these artists…sigh. Actually there was a nice shirt design (rainbow-y, psychedelic-looking) at the Paul McCartney concert…but it only came in kids’ sizes. What does this say about my taste???
At least the band did not disappoint:
After a great show, it was back on the Go train to the car, then home.
And that is how to pace one’s self to get through 3 musical events over 4 steamy, energy-sapping days.
