Fred Perry Presents: Jay Reatard’s Return to Toronto


Fred Perry had their 2nd annual fall launch party last night. They flew in Jay Reatard to play this one, Andre Ethier and Black Mountain played last year, so they’ve got a good track record.

This was the first time Jay played Toronto since he punched that kid at the Silver Dollar show in April when a bunch of his gear got wrecked and he stormed off stage after 4 songs.

They played a killer set of 10 or 12 songs and then left the stage and everyone booed because they wanted more. I don’t know if his guitar actually broke or if he just leaves the stage like that everytime because he doesn’t want to say “Thanks Toronto! Good night!”


There was free booze and everyone got very drunk. Everyone was happy.



Some of us went to Deirdre and Chad’s place after to play euchre and drink orange juice.

Adrienne and I went to her place after and ate blueberry muffins with taziki, pickles and tomatoes and then went to sleep!
