Above and Beyond: Cathy Young and Russ Little George Oliver Carl Harvey Familiars and famosas fabulosos flocked to Lula Lounge's Ides of March fest, hosted by perpetual emotion mama, Cathy Young, "a party waiting to be had", as the MC put it. And more than one Caesar was, in fact, killed, as a progression of Toronto talents made a powerful noise together and Cathy surged and sang through a broad selection of rock blues and R&B standards.

Sarah Greene and Collette Savard for collecting and curating so much & so many more music vids than I had ever imagined to exist from within the Tranzac community. Making our "music city" obvious, evident & available is of huge benefit to the city's spirit and legacy. Again, please, again!
