I guess by now you all have seen all the posts and resulting comments and opinions from far and wide in regards to the TMBA and Tribe Toronto. I have nothing to add (LOL). I can't really comment on things that I know very little about. As a masquerader, I am just waiting for all this melee to be over with so we can get to the real bacchanal......BAND LAUNCH SEASON!!! Spring has sprung in Toronto and the band launches start next month.....check my previous post for all the confirmed dates so far.
In related news, XPATS will host their Section Launch on Saturday, May 15, 2010 at the Meadowvale Community Centre, 6655 Glen Erin Dr., Mississauga. XPATS are a part of the Saldenah Crew and their section is called "Portraits of Autumn".
