With the opening of a new retail store at Yonge and Dundas â€” part of the new Ryerson University campus â€” there was a “free” concert. I biked over, and there was a large crowd all the way across to the Toronto Eaton Centre. As the crowd thinned, I got a bit closer, but the sound was still better than the view. Can you see?
That’s actually John Mayer. Here’s what a 420mm zoom looks like, cropped.
I might have paid to have seen him a few weeks earlier when he was playing The Mod Club, but it’s a tiny venue that sold out quickly. There’s been some debate whether he’s more a pop star or a guitar geek, and i think that he’s really the latter.
P.S. I’m going to start putting dates in the title (when it makes a difference), and leaving the blog entry dates to when I actually write the post.
