THE ORIGINS OF

THE FLYER VAULT

The Flyer Vault project began with the discovery of a trunk of several thousand flyers that I saved during my time as a music-crazed teenager and young adult. These pieces of ephemera were destined for the landfill but represented a tangible piece of culture that I could hold onto and cherish. They had value. They represented memories of great moments with people I had never met who left their differences at home, and bonded under the strobe lights and speaker stacks of a live concert or all-night rave.

As I started posting these old flyers to social media, people took notice. From promoters to venue owners, artists to fans, everyone waxed nostalgic about past shows that left an imprint on their life. With time, the account got more popular and became a community of rockers, hip-hoppers, metalheads, ravers, and everyone in between.

Since then, the project has grown to include assisting with historical exhibits, providing consulting and curation services, and the release of the Amazon best-selling book, “The Flyer Vault: 150 Years of Toronto Concert History,” co-written with Grammy-winning writer Rob Bowman, released by Dundurn Press in 2019.

This endeavor is about celebrating the rich history and incredible people who’ve made Toronto the great music city it is today.

These pages will take you on a musical magical mystery tour of Toronto’s important place in concert history. Reading The Flyer Vault gives you a rush, just like the one you get when the house lights go down!

The time span is impressive, the breadth of talent expansive, and more than anything else, it’s a truly fun ride for any time traveller to take. It’s a record of the musical life of a city that, thanks to The Flyer Vault, is gone but no longer forgotten.

The Flyer Vault helps bottle the lore, bringing me a little bit closer to my Toronto and it’s shows that have only grown in renown.
