I made a mad dash to Toronto last weekend to see a rare live performance by the legendary punk band from New York, Television, who were playing as part of the NXNE Festival.
All four original members were on stage at the Phoenix Concert Theatre - Tom Verlaine (guitar, vocals), Richard Lloyd (guitar), Billy Ficca (drums) and Fred Smith (bass). They played sensational versions of many of their best known songs, such as Marquee Moon, See No Evil and Venus, included a few new ones, then topped off the show with a searing version of Jimi Hendrix's I Don't Live Today.

I'd only seen the band play once before, and that was here in Ann Arbor at the Blind Pig back in 1992!
