I went on Tuesday night and was very excited to see a couple of my favourite bands play. The plan was to photograph the event but was told at the door that no outside photographers were allowed to shoot just in case any celebrities in town for TIFF showed up.
Sadly, I put down my camera and shifted my focus (from lens to actual eye). The room was jammed with music-lovers and I have never seen the Mod Club looking so swanky. Open Wine was flowing, along with Beau's and Mill Street Organic beer.
Hey Ocean is the band that said no to Gene Simmons when he wanted to sign them. So I hope that they continue along the path of staying true to what is obviously in their heart (fun danceable music!).
Dan Mangan's set (above) was killer with his ability to make all of the ladies in the room swoon. Rdio was the official music streaming destination for Festival Music House. On the FMH site, you can listen to tunes from all of the artists that played thanks to Rdio.
