Toronto (August 7, 2006)–Toronto’s Historic Fort York recently hosted a new festival, “Dog Day Afternoon,” featuring Canadian wonders Metric and David Bowie’s current fav band, Secret Machines, from Brooklyn, NY.
Toronto’s Towers Productions provided full production for the event, including 24 Adamson Y-10s hung high with a SpekTrix wave at the bottom of each hang. An additional 16 SX Subs were ground stacked left and right of stage, while four LX10s were used as front fill, and a pair of SpekTrix Subs with three SpekTrix stacked on top of them on both sides of the stage provided side fills.
The audience ended up being jam-packed; Metric had the crowd on its feet, causing the band’s FOH engineer, Sean Richards, to remark, “What more can I say? Wherever I can arrange for a Y10 system, whether on tour or just a one off, I always insist on it!”
Meanwhile, Secret Machines FOH Engineer Philip J. Harvey added, “The Adamson Y-10’s have been at the top of my preference list for years. I was impressed when touring the rig with Medeski, Martin and Wood. No matter where we were–large theater, small club or outside–the coverage and fidelity was always consistent and inspiring.”
Adamson Systems’ Jesse Adamson was the sound designer for Dog Day Afternoon, and together with Adamson’s technical aid Adam McGillivray, was present at the Friday set-up to tune the system. Watching over FOH was Perry Disera of Towers Productions.
