Big Week Coming Up!
In the twilight of summer, and we're still chugging along in the basement, our AC crankin' out that cold air and the music on stage heating up the joint.
We've got a pretty nice line-up of great music and cool events coming up this week - let's check it out....
Write On Readings fosters the voices of emerging writers in Toronto who are interested in showcasing their dramatic work, while also engaging the communities of West Toronto, particularly that of Bloor West, Roncesvalles, the Junction, and the Junction Triangle in dialogues about theatre, storytelling and the performing arts.
Wednesday, August 17th - CLOSED - Staff Appreciation BBQ
We don't have anything booked, and me (Grunk) and the staff decided that we haven't actually hung out in a real long time all together when we weren't working. After eating some awesome food - you'll probably be able to find us over at our favourite spot - Cabin Fever.
Thursday, August 18th - 9pm - Chelsea Reed And The Danger Bees - $5
Another great Thursday Night of Live Music in the Junction, featuring down under songstress Chelsea Reed with her full band along with power pop madmen The Danger Bees, this is a show that should cover a pretty broad spectrum of the current 'indie' (whatever the hell that actually is) sound.
When I was putting this post together, I think I listened to the Danger Bees on repeat for about 30 minutes. Reminded me a lot of the best elements of Sloan and as well as having elements of Big Star and the Replacements in their sound as well. You'll enjoy this one.
Holy Crap! It's my birthday! I've had such an incredible year in the Junction that Beau's and I are going to be paying your cover tonight. Come on down to see an absolutely incredible 11 piece soul band thoroughly rock the house, and stick around as I'll be playing soul and funk 45's before, in between and after the band. Let's Party.
This is going to be an emotional night for a lot of us, as a band that feels like it's been with us since we can remember will be playing their last show. We're going to be screening the concert in its entirety followed by a special free show featuring Red Handed Denial and Kink. To find out more about the show - check out the Facebook link right here.
