NXNE is a great time to discover new artists, new sounds, and new venues; for several days Toronto sleeplessly enjoys ecclectic variety of music. In the spirit of ‘discovery’, I recently stumbled upon a gem of a gallery: Analogue Gallery–an intimate space that houses an impressive collection of authentic candid photographs of artists/bands and iconic signed vinyls.
Entering into Analogue Gallery is like entering into several decades at once–the grainy, black & white photographs and slick vinyls fill the walls with ‘cool’. Analogue houses photographs of The Beatles, Blondie, Arcade Fire, Madonna, Bob Marley, Neil Young, Frank Sinatra, and Bruce Springsteen, to name a few. They also hosts parties–just recently throwing a huge bash on their back patio with live music, adult refreshments, and oodles of fun–to celebrate NXNE, of course. The Creative Director of Analogue, Lucia Graca, is hip, resourceful, and passionate–full of information and eager to help.
Analogue Gallery is the perfect space to escape and re-connect with your inner music lover.
Analogue Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday from noon to 7PM and Sunday from noon to 5PM, it’s located at 637 Queen Street W.
