Goldenballs & Redlight Ranch Live at the Linsmore Tavern!!

This Thursday night the Linsmore Tavern is excited to bring back two of our favourite and two of the most incredible indie, rock acts in Toronto that are ready to tear down the house this Thursday night!  Redlight Ranch are back and will be opening the show at 9pm, followed by the returning Goldenballs! These 2 bands have played a few shows over the years at the Linsmore Tavern and they always deliver the goods!  This is going to be a happening night of great original rock music!

REDLIGHT RANCH was named after the storied East York brothel where they played an extended engagement as the house band, providing the soundtrack for countless illicit affairs and political wranglings. Originally formed as a private Super Group by a (now deceased) home candle sales mogul, the band has been hard at work on their debut album scheduled for release in the fall of 2016.

The members of REDLIGHT RANCH were raised on a steady diet of Classic Rock, John Hughes movies and sugary cereals, and they wear their influences on their collective sleeve: The swagger of the Stones, the thundering rhythm of Zeppelin, blistering guitar leads from the tallest Marshall Stacks and the heartbreaking poignancy of The Go Gos. But like all great alchemy, the output of REDLIGHT RANCH is far more potent, mystical and dangerous than the sum of its ingredients.

Johnny Haunting – Lead vocals, guitar
Jim E – Lead guitar, vocals
Tawl McCartney – Bass guitar, vocals
Bean – Drums, vocals

Based in Toronto, Goldenballs plays rock n roll.  The Band features members: Duncan McRae - Guitar / vocals, Scott Megginson - Guitar, Paul Mitchell - Bass, Matt Webster - Drums

The show starts at 9pm, there is no cover so come out and enjoy this double bill of original music!
