R.I.P. L.I.P.

Today, Eye Weekly's daily blog published my tribute to Lance Ingleton, the man behind LIP Entertainment.

He was a visionary programmer of live events in Toronto. I never knew him but after talking to former CIUT colleague Denise Jones and reggae musician Lazo, I wish I had. Ingleton sounded like a upright guy who was very committed to a wide range of cultural promotion.

I knew this ticket stub was worth saving. This was from Reggaefest 90 at Lamport Stadium - Dennis Brown headlined the other night. Other names on the bill: the then white-hot Shabba Ranks, and a young rap group called A Tribe Called Quest.
