We did it! We drove out to Toronto for the first leg of the Canadian tour to have to leave before the doors even opened due to the ridiculous amount of rain pouring on us. We were sitting under an empty tent wearing garbage bags with unopened boxes of shirts on the table because the rain was coming in at all angles, there was an inch of water under our feet so we couldn't put the boxes directly on the ground, and when we went to setup the banners the tent would start to lift up in the air! It was crazy, so we had to make a decision and we decided to drive back home. It was a pretty good decision as we got back to Montreal around 5pm, so we had a chance to get a good sleep before dealing with the 34 degree heat we were to encounter in Montreal. But other than the heat everything went well, people were happy to see us there and loved our original designs. Although a lot of kids were confused as to what we were (a band, a clothing company) they were very excited about our product which is always encouraging when trying to sell to a certain demographic. So here are some pictures. And even though I thought we were going to take a well deserved break after this there's still another show next week in Montreal. We'll be selling during a Japanese horror screening at Fantasia, so come and check it out! I even got to watch a bit of Pierce the Veil and Bring Me The Horizon's sets. I'll post the Pierce the Veil videos I took on youtube. They did what I thought was an awesome cover of Drake's song "Find Your Love" as an into to one of their songs. There was also a great cover of "Gangsters Paradise" by a band called In Fear and Faith.
