NOVA'S JUNCTION REVUE
The Alonetown Tour Presents: Alonetown
Hosted by Recording Artist and Host of Kushroomtv 'Ekelle'
Junction City Music Hall is excited to invite young and old to another of our classic daytime dance parties. At 2pm on Sunday September 16th, DJ JPQ will be spinning the hits for both young and old, the arcade will be free, and the bar will be open with a choice selection of adult and all ages beverages. As we love to welcome our West End community and beyond we are proudly continuing to offer the reasonable cover of 5$ per family. Stroller parking and ear protection are available. Join us in our cozy basement as we shake away those back to school blues!
If Junction City had a Blockbuster videoesque “STAFF PICKS” wall then this band would be permanently stacked on it. Their fresh ride on the old alt-country road atop a classic rocking horse has cemented this gang of world wisened gunslingers as one of the best to ever grace our stage.
Come and feel it. Like the mighty pine on the ponderosa - You can’t help but grow.
It’s the Sarandons, kid. Catch up.
The Junction City stalwart 90’s tribute band. From a time when you had to tape videos off Much Music so you could listen to your favourite songs, this band are less nostalgia trippers than expert players bringing these anthems of slack and circumstance into a modern context as eternal documents of rock.
It is wonderful when good things happen to good people. Longtime friend of the JCMH and gifted soulman Mr. Jim Junior is home from recording in the UK. To say he will have treats to share and new levels to flex would be to set a bar, and that would be unfair because incomparable performer is capable of height we can’t currently imagine.
This dude comes by his current ascent to the big time through the honest alchemy of talent, patience, and hard work. All it will take from you to see a star of tomorrow on the rise is to get through the hallway and onto the dancefloor.
A rare Toronto show. Whatever comes next for this powerful artist will be huge. You’ll have to come and ask him who he’s been talking to…
It is the distinct honour of Junction City to welcome back our good friends…
Always packed, never not amazing.
The boys return to their favourite residency armed with the joy that only this band of merry music makers can bestow upon our sweaty basement choir. Become one with the glory of song. Be yourself. On this celebration of Live Karaoke, we are all good enough.
Come get down with the Good Enough band.
Beach Fox are a band that have drawn comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Kinks, Modern Lovers, pre megafame/aliens Blink 182, and that’s just round the uber critical Junction City water cooler.
There are many reasons why this kinetic and heart stirring sound has led to a proliferation of high profile gigs in this band’s few years on the scene.
With the addition of ace bassist Keilah Crocker this band has taken a rock solid power pop and fun post-punk formula and braced for the bright lights of the arenas and theatres they are destined to destroy.
Catch them in an intimate setting while you still can.
Count it off and tie yo mama down as we bring you a long weekend of timeless rock. In our intimate space you will be close enough to touch these gleaming gods and goddesses of sound.
Also on the night are the youthful rock historians The 86’ers. These young dudes carry the news, the big axes, and a powerful sound that’s as reliable as death and taxes.
Junction City is thrilled to welcome the best trivia night in the Junction, Junction City Music Trivia & Karaoke Jam.
Test your trivia knowledge and music nerdery as DJ JPQ walks you through a hilarious multimedia adventure through your own mind. Win or lose, this is terrific entertainment in a top shelf venue, and to make it even better...when the trivia battles is won, all are welcome to belt out songs from the Junction City stage in an inclusive and expressive karaoke jam.
Use your mind and your pipes will follow. Literally.

Formed in Somerville, MA in March, 2018, the founding members, Alex and Ralph, decided to build the band and its music around the phrase, “honest words for honest people.” The band has since evolved with that goal in mind and has continued to focus on creating simple, vulnerable, and evocative music for anyone who decides to listen.
The Nameless Citizens
Nameless Citizens (a.k.a. The NC’s) is the solo project of Peter Boros out of Toronto, Canada. The Nameless Citizens mission is to capture key moments in our everyday lives, weaving simple themes and melodies into a complex, rich tapestry of music reflecting the serendipitous nature of life itself. Offering a unique brand of intellectual pop-rock, The NC’s combines influences from rock groups such as Pearl Jam, The Killers and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the flowing pop-rock of Coldplay and U2, and the cerebral music of Sting and Peter Gabriel.
Of all the Websters in all the world of music, WE CHOOSE DANNY!
In his words…

In the mid-aughts, Sleepless Nights carved out their reputation as one of the hardest working bands on the East Coast of Canada. By their final tours in 2009, when the group was put on indefinite hiatus, Sleepless Nights were playing an entire new, unreleased set of songs. There was a miffed attempt at capturing them in 2011, but no recordings were ever completed. In June 2016, approaching the 10-year anniversary of their breakout EP, Hang Up, Sleepless Nights reconvened for a weekend of recording in Toronto at Taurus Recording with Thomas D’Arcy (Small Sins/The Ladies and Gentlemen, k-os) to archive four of those songs. With former member Matt MacDonald (The Superfantastics) joining them in studio, the band recorded Keith Hamilton – an EP that chronicles the now seasoned musicians returning to their roots.

Red Nightfall are a Toronto indie rock band. Founded in 2010 they released their self titled debut album in 2011. In 2013 they released the EP ‘Late in the Fever’. In 2017 they released their second full length album ‘Anna, don’t disappear’, available on major music streaming applications and at their Bandcamp . Each release has been met with far flung, albeit sparse, critical acclaim.
The cool basement will be easily mistaken for the island of Jamaica as selector supreme Brigadier ShazBad (fresh off a triumphant vinyl set last month) comes down to take you on a jounrey through the work of trombone master and ace reggae artist Don Drummond.
