Context

This building was empty for many years and was covered with paintings all through the 80s . For a while an underground boozecan operated with a back door entrance and generators for electricity. Go to the green door in the alley to get in... very 80's in Toronto. I saw great gigs by the Goofs, Handsome Ned and the Wild Things there.
