The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern: A Complete History by David McPherson

As a life-long Torontonian and former club goer in my youth, I was happy to learn that a book about oneof my favourite venues, the Horseshoe Tavern, was finally being published. The Horseshoe is one of Toronto’s most important musical treasures gracing the city’s culture since 1947. And while I share David McPherson’s excitement around the famous club and its revolutionary music programming, I cannot say the same about his book, The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern: A Complete History(Dundurn Press). His writing is inconsistent, graced with too many clichés; section breaks using (* * *) and wise guy remarks that undermine his extensive research so much that his book hasn’t the impact it should.
