Photos: The Silver Dollar’s Farewell Show

Rest easy, sweet prince

After much public debate and coverage, the legendary Silver Dollar Room hosted its final show this past weekend with Toronto noise-rockers METZ holding the honour of the final performer.

Toronto indie music-scene pioneer and promoter of ‘The Dollar’ Dan Burke was on hand for the show, which was an epic send off to one of Toronto’s most distinct and finest live music venues.

While the finale was a celebration of great live music that underpins the history of the venue, ultimately it was a sad night for music in Toronto.
