2.3 Dundas West
Play • 1 hr 4 min

The last virtual walking tour of this season will follow Dundas Street West - the latest contender to rival Queen, College and Bloor Streets as Toronto’s liveliest music strip - on a west-end odyssey. Starting at Bathurst and wandering west to the hipster corner of Dundas & Ossington - where small yet mighty independent venues The Dakota Tavern, The Garrison and The Painted Lady are emerging from a fight for survival - this episode will also explore the vibrant Latin and global music scenes supported by Lula Lounge, the up-and-coming arts scene on Sterling Road, and former folk hub Hugh’s Room. The episode will also address the imminent change of the Dundas street name - which came from an 18th century anti-abolitionist - in an interview with Andrew Lochhead, the local activist who spearheaded the petition to change the name.
