The street was closed yesterday on Bay, just south of Bloor, to let the thousands of Leonard Cohen fans enjoy the outdoor performance at Indigo Books. And what a treat! Leonard was supposed to only introduce his partner, Anjani, who released a CD of music written by Cohen, and possibly sing a song or two, but the crowd got about 4 songs in total, including an unplanned jam session with Ron Sexsmith and the Barenaked Ladies.
I have posted more photos here, on my Flickr account.
