Going out with some friends to see one of Toronto's best bands.
I will supply a review later.

Ron Hawkins was my neighbour when I lived in the Annex in the early 90's. We didn’t speak much but our girlfriends hung out together all the time. What’s funny is when Ron and his GF moved out, Ken MacNeil - singer from Rusty moved in with his GF and dog Rusty (band is named after the dog!). Good people!

Good story, remember Rusty as well, they just kind of faded away
I regret to report, the concert was a bit of a disappointment.
The Low are now Hawkins and the original drummer. No Steve Stanley on lead guitar. He was sorely missed. They had some wall flower playing lead off to the side of stage, while the guy could play, he had no presence and was turned down pretty low in the mix.
Hawkins delivered, as you can imagine, but without Stanley's excellent guitar work and guitar tone as well as his captivating stage presence, it just wasn't the Low for me.
The opening band, Sam Cash was very good. He has an early Elvis Costello sound to his songs.
I would see him again for sure.
