If you’re lucky enough to be in the know, then Sofar Sounds are a good way to see free live music in the city. Started in the UK, Sofar Sounds was about bringing live music into small public spaces to give that secret living room effect. Now there are pop-up gigs in over 18 cities worldwide.
I got to check out my first Sofar event at an art gallery on Dundas St. And apparently the secret is out as this place was rammed. Grabbing my place on the floor between the usual hipster Toronto music crowd, I got to see 4 different artists/bands performing an all acoustic set. Pretty cool for a free event.
