haha. Gonzales is one of my friends exes. Pretty talented and funny guy. Feist is also tight with Peaches
I first came to know her when I lived around the corner from a place called The Rivoli in Toronto which was a Thai restaurant/poolhall/hip bar and a performance space. Kids in the Hall, Broken Social Scene, the above mentioned and lots of others were regulars. Super eclectic mix. The Broadway hit The Drowsy Chaperone even opened there. Really great place. Also down the street from the studio and apartment you mentioned. At the beginnings some nights there were only like 30 people there.
So undoubtedly have an emotional connection to the place and a lot of the acts since that was when I first moved to the big city and got my first real job. I only like about half of her stuff but really liked Metals.
