    Saturday Punk Rock legends Goldfinger returned to Toronto to make amends to fans who felt short changed after the debacle that resulted at Wakestock.  Their last visit to our city left them bitter and angry with a shortened set, (See Video) but this time around they were able to make it past the song "Mable" and play an explosive set that lasted just over an hour.  The band spared no expense, belting out song after song that spanned their 15 year musical career.  Highlights included fan favorite "Mable", "Counting The Days" and the song that put this band into the limelight "Here In Your Bedroom".  Continue reading “Dodger, Rides Again, Goldfinger at The Sound Academy”
