If you’ve ever been to London or New York, you may have taken a walking tour of some of the city’s musical landmarks. (If you haven’t, I highly recommend doing so once this COVID-19 business goes away.)
There’s now a virtual sort of tour of Toronto called Music Memories of Yonge. At one point, a stretch of Yonge Street was the most happening part of the city with a long string of music venues featuring genres of all sorts . This includes the Colonial Tavern, Brown Derby, Piccadilly Tube, Club Bluenote, Massey Hall, Maple Leaf Gardens, Eton Auditorium (now The Carlu), and more. Resources for the tour come from Nicholas Jennings, a guy who led walking tours when we didn’t have a plague in our midst.
