The Old Stand-By: Meat

Ever since the 1950’s, rock’n’roll and meat have become one in the same. They ceased to be distinct entities with the advent of Americana diners and the popularity of rotund musicians like Fats Domino and later Elvis, and haven’t separated themselves since. By the 1970’s, rock’n’roll actually became a meal.
“What do you want for dinner tonight, sugar-face?”
“Let’s have ourselves a little rock’n’roll, cowboy!”
And there’s at least one 8-piece retro-psych ensemble band in Toronto that remembers these days. Tonight at the Silver Dollar (486 Spadina), the The Old Soul play their best meat and serve large amounts of rock’n’roll for what should have been called the Rockin’ Barbeque Review. The night features the Old Soul and their unique brand Beach Boys-eque sausages, condiments, beer and spirits. They’ll be complimented by Spitfires&Mayflowers and healthy portions DJ Stuart Berman.
