The Island giveth and the Island taketh away. Normally a respite from the hurly-burly of the city, this spring and summer have seen Toronto Island seemingly under siege by nature, suddenly seemingly eager to reclaim the glorious sandbar that has building up in the city's natural harbour for so long. This should be a sobering reminder of the long-term challenges the city faces in the coming ecological catastrophe — but in the short term we also have to face up to the bummer of Wavelength's annual summer festival losing its venue. Regrouping with all their logistical acumen, the WL crew has at least salvaged some of the outdoor vibe with a pair of free outdoor daytime shows close to the water's edge. The night-time portion won't be quite the same, but there's still a wealth of excellent homegrown and imported music to make up for from the vibechange.
