This past Saturday, December 10, I had the privilege of seeing the Anti-Queens perform their second last show at Cherry Colas. Sadly the bar is closing on December 23rd and it’s going to be a big loss for live music in Toronto. The atmosphere at Cherries was always welcoming and the music was always great (thanks in in no small part to people like Cherish Stevenson and Matt Groopie). If you haven’t had the chance to go yet, you should.
Sadness aside, the evening’s bill also saw Streetsville’s own Tomahawk Love perform a fantastic set as well. The boys treated the audience to their special brand of tight party rock. As a special treat, Anti-Queens’ bass player Miss Mary Deth jumped on stage to help sing Tomahawk Love’s song Deadliest Catch. It was a great night.
