Lakeshore Sound Clash is a paean to King Pong’s community of New Toronto. A culturally diverse neighbourhood divided along class lines by Lakeshore Boulevard placing industrial lots vacant due to toxic contamination, dive bars, sex clubs, knife and gun violence, and working class families in community housing on the north side, with yacht clubs, lawn bowling, and multi-million dollar waterfront homes just a few blocks away on the south side. Most emblematic of this divide was the recent Ontario election (that saw crypto-fascist stooge Doug Ford seated in power) where it was a close race between the diametrically opposed NDP and PC parties. America has Red and Blue states, New Toronto has Orange and Blue streets and those who voted for Ford walk shoulder to shoulder with those who’ll be most negatively affected. Already you can feel tensions rising.
