Steamwhistle Unsigned Series


The Steamwhistle Unsigned concert series featured a collection of concerts, held at Steamwhistle’s beautiful and historic Front street brewery. Each concert in the series served up several up-and-coming indie artists, alongside delightfully cheap and tasty Steamwhistle beer.

Right across the street from the brewery is the Rogers Center, where this night the Boston Red Sox were busy trouncing the Toronto Blue Jays. So getting to the brewery that night was a bit of a zoo — but if you could get past the legions of red or blue fans and their vehicular traffic, you were in for a treat at the brewery.


The Framework played an hour-long set of their infectious rock-pop at the Steamwhistle, significantly longer than their usual club set. This gave the band more time to play some long-lost favorites, including Evolution and Into the Sun, proudly featured on their EP (and sadly omitted from most of their set lists). These songs seem to strike a nostalgic chord with the band, performed alongside with a few covers of some of their favourite songs. Definitely a treat and something different from a usual club set!


Lioness is a trio from Toronto featuring the vocal talents Vanessa Fischer over an electronica sound with influences from house or drum and bass genres. Not exactly my cup of tea but their presence on stage, and the light show, was entertaining to watch.
