A local sleuth discovered the source of the late-night music that disrupted the neighbourhood last weekend: it was “Summer Slamm” [sic] being held at the old Days Inn on Wilson, now portentously called the Wilson Avenue Arena. It was a concert sponsored by the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Festival.
The next evening, police cracked down on the event and shut it down early. Paying customers were angry. One Facebook commenter said:
“Deleting the negative comments isn’t going to help, Summer Slammm. The event was shut down at 145 before any performers showed up and the bar was open from only twelve to one. We were told to go home and offered no explanations or refunds…. You’re making Caribana look unorganized and illegal.” [sics all over the place]
Your humble correspondent will not be organizing a refund drive for those deprived of their evening’s entertainment.
