083: city and colour

So today I went downtown Toronto to see Mr. Dallas Green play a free show. I couldn't miss out, this man is my hero. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Juno awards City and Colour was part of a line up including Shad and Hannah Georgas that played this free outdoor show.
This was the 7th time I've seen Dallas (not including the times I've seen Alexisonfire and that is way more than 7 times for sure) and I never get sick of him.
It was a pretty cold day, I'm pretty sure it was about -10 degrees celsius the windchill was about -20 degrees celsius. I was outside from 6:30pm - 10pm. Not good...but that is why I wore a tank top, long sleeve top, wool sweater, wool jacket, leggings, jeans, over the knee socks, 2 more pairs of socks, muk luks, mittens, scarf, & hat. No big deal. haha!
As cold as I was by the end of the night - I was colder when I went to see Our Lady Peace in -20 degree celsius weather. I was probably outside from 9pm-1am (I don't remember the exact amount)
But when you can't feel your toes or fingers and don't remember how to bend your knees...it's a terrible feeling.
I'm exhausted now and it's not only because I was trying to hold a camera above my head to take any photos at all...but also because this long day in the cold followed a day of shovelling the heavy heavy snow!
Well...since it's 2:30am - I'll get to the photos I snapped:

I love my height. Let's me look at so many hats. Sometimes I get other peoples staticy hair in my mouth too!

The Exhibition: Princess Gates under construction






Here's a video I shot the last time I saw City and Colour in Toronto. Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip made a surprise appearance for the encore song (The Sleeping Sickness) and it was the greatest moment ever!



This is my most viewed video ever. Also, the first time I saw City and Colour live in 2007. I remember trying to get tickets to see him in 2005 but having plans fall through =(



Dallas & I in 2008 <3

Just curious...but do YOU love Dallas Green/City and Colour? ;)
