Band Profile and Interview: Carolina Liar

Band Profile and Interview: Carolina Liar

Last Tuesday (Aug 28th), I sat down with pop-rock band Carolina Liar before they opened for The Fray and Kelly Clarkson at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. This was an interesting one for me as the band has roots originating from South Carolina and Sweden. I spent some time living in Sweden and was anxious to meet up […]

Top 10 Cosplay Girls at FAN EXPO 2012

Following up on Chris and I’s recent visit to Fan Expo 2012 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center - we got to relive some of our favourite childhood memories and immerse ourselves in nerd and geek culture. We took hundreds of photos and I selected some of the best and most relevant cosplays I saw among the crowd. Enjoy! […]

“Great Scott!” Last weekend, Karl and I had an epic time hanging out with superheroes, villains, vixens, droids, Jedis, Pokémon, zombies, and celebrities. From Aug 23-26, Fan Expo Canada crossed off another big year as the largest Canadian multi-genre fan convention welcomed thousands of nerds, gamers, and comic lovers to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Concert Highlights: Our Lady Peace w/ Mother Mother and Said the Whale

Concert Highlights: Our Lady Peace w/ Mother Mother and Said the Whale

Getting a chance to see Our Lady Peace last weekend (Aug 19, at Echo Beach) gave me a wicked sense of nostalgia. The 20-year old alternative rock band has been on my favourite list ever since I picked up their Clumsy album back in 1997 – which to this day, I feel was their best […]

Recap: Oh So Beautiful – 1 Year Anniversary Production

Last weekend we finally got back to our roots and hit up a show that showcased some very talented local musicians. This is a scene I’ve wanted to get back into for a while as we’ve only been covering bigger label artists as of late. I love the independent music scene – it’s pure, emotional, […]

Every now and then D-Rex gets to suit-up and hit the city’s sophisticated scene. This is especially true when we get to attend an event that celebrates a country that has helped shape our city with an array of arts and culture over the years. 2012 is a huge year for Jamaica as it marks […]

VELD Music Festival 2012 – Weekend Highlights

VELD Music Festival 2012 – Weekend Highlights

This is the summer of EDM in Toronto. Never have I seen this many festivals and concerts of the nature come to our city (let alone Ontario) in such tight increments. It actually still amazes me at how big the EDM scene has grown in just a few years. I love the fact that I […]

TO Food Fest – Top Picks

And here I eat again… On July 29th, I was invited by food blogger and occasional D-Rex contributor, Jennifer (from Mokitoki Eats), to help review some tasty chow at the first ever TO Food Fest in Scarborough. Essentially, I was on a mission that day: ‘Try as many eats as humanly possible… Then hit the […]

July in Review: Our Favourite Photos

July in Review: Our Favourite Photos

Hey D-Rex readers! So it has officially been two and a half months since we ‘re-launched‘ our once measly blog into something more official. I think we got the hang of this ‘Twitter‘ thing and Karl has finally entered the 21st century with a basic knowledge of Facebook. Thank you so much for all the […]

Recap: Mobil 1 Presents the Grand Prix of Mosport

A little over an hour east of the GTA resides a motorsports mecca that remains predominantly unknown to the average Torontonian: Mosport (aka The Canadian Tire Motorsports Park). This racetrack plays host to a number of professional car races series each year, but none is more prestigious than the annual Grand Prix of Mosport. We […]
