If you spent Friday night in bed last week – or cowering in your basement for fear of the looming clouds of preeminent precipitation – then you missed out on an EPIC night of Toronto-based retro-inspired rock.

Indie pop rock collective The Cautioneers opened up the night with a mind-blowing horn-tinged set of tunes, before turning the stage over to now-four-piece dance-rock staples Foxfire.

The Holiday Crowd followed up in the third spot, belting out a set of Smiths-inspired tracks, joined soon after by fellow 80s rock throwback act Mausoleum closing off the night with a handful of hard-hitting songs that left the crowd craving more (it’s a good thing some of those wonderful Toronto venues were open until 4am last week).

Check out the photos below and hit up the bands at the following links so you can get a picture of exactly what when down at The Silver Dollar.
