Yes, that’s right, you heard me correctly. The El Mocambo is set to close it’s doors for good it seems this time. This is not a blog to discuss the why’s and whatnot of this, but to show some great photos of the scene that is Live Music in Toronto!
Pat Travers is one of the featured guests at the Light of Day Canada : Parkinson’s Disease and Benefit coming up this November 6th. This being the final show at the El Mo.
These pix are from a recent Pat Travers Band show at the Rockpile East. Expect a great show at the El Mo! Here is their link for all the details. Light of Day

Don’t forget to share, link and all that fun stuff, cheers!
A great night of classic tunes at the Danforth Music Hall when 54-40 and the Grapes of Wrath , both legendary Canadian bands, played to a packed house. Both have new albums out now so we heard a great selection of both old hits and new ideas.
The warm-up act, Julian Taylor started things off
Freakin Great Show! There is a little story to this show for me, I was offered a extra ticket at face value to check these bands out. Although I know their music and have some albums, I have never seen them perform live before. Awesome! Then I had to get on the horn to see if I could get a photo-pass to get my camera in. The Danforth MH is known to not let anybody in with a pro-looking camera without credentials. So I sent out requests to both bands publicists thinking I was probably a little late to get this request in.
Just as I was set to head out the door sans camera, I pressed ‘check email’ one last time and lo and behold! “AOK on the pass, check in at Will Call” from the guys in the Grapes of Wrath camp. Schweeeet!
So without further mumbo-jumbo, here are the results of that live shoot at the DMH. Thank you and enjoy!
