  • Edition: First edition

    "The first book to tell the story of Toronto's massive influence on popular music. Part civic history and part memoir from this veteran scene-builder and founder of the acclaimed Wavelength concert series, From the Top charts the evolution of Toronto's diverse independent music scene in the latter half of the 20th century. From the Yorkville and Yonge Street scenes that spawned Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and The Band in the '60s, through to the hip-hop, indie rock, and electronica-laden nineties, with acts like Broken Social Scene, Maestro Fresh-Wes, and Peaches, Dovercourt tells the story of how key venues, neighbourhoods, artists and promoters laid the groundwork for this provincial outpost to grow into a music mecca."--
