Gypsy, give me your tears

Last night, after a delicious meal of tasty treats and live jazz at Commensal with my cousin visiting from Vancouver, we headed to Dundas Square where Goran Bregovic, along with his 20-piece Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, were performing as part of Luminato, the Toronto Festival of Arts + Creativity. (For those of you that aren't familiar with the name, you may already be acquainted with Bregovic through his score for Borat.) The concert was full of energy, jam-packed with people and the music was amazing.

"Serbian Gypsy brass bands are party generators and Mr. Bregovic's compositions let them do their job." (The New York Times)

Special guest appearance by Batman. (Superheroes like to party, too, y'know.)
