Headlining this evening is Lon Chaney Movie who have previously headlined 2 incredible showcase nights at the Linsmore and has a ton of momentum going right now! Also performing on this evening will be Rock, Alternative Indie Band Flight Risk and Grungy, Americana Indie Rock Band, The Steady Burn! The night starts at 7:30pm, there will be a $10 cover charge at the door! Lon Chaney was known as the Man of a Thousand Faces. While it cannot be said that the Lon Chaney Movie are the Band of Thousand Sounds, the potential is certainly there. This is music where the drums and bass (oh that bass) come straight at you, with the guitar riffs melting into the rhythm to take you away. Indie, meet Prog. An almost familiar sound that will sometimes blast its way into your ears with visions of Jane's Addiction, Sabbath or Zeppelin before bringing you back from the edge with warm guitar riffs. A fresh take on disciplined indie rock with a pedigree of Prog and dare I say Punk? Gary, Neil and Enrico are always worth a listen . Flying out of Toronto, fresh off a performance at the legendary El Mocambo, comes a band with an unstoppable sound and energy that will leave you craving for more. Flight Risk combines a rhythmic mix of rock, pop and alternative music with a brand new modern-day edge. Knowing sure well that time and experience is what really makes a band, Flight Risk is just that. Years of experience and an appetite for more makes a recipe to look out for. The Steady Burn out of the ashes, a new journey begins, one telling stories of the many roads travelled, constantly moving and changing through the twists and turns that life throws your way. The Steady Burn is a Toronto-based indie rock band, rooted in a grungy influence of alternative, alt country, Americana and folk. Fronted by Blake Ruelens, formerly of Left on the Dial, whose songwriting, vocals and acoustic guitar form the underlying voice and fire of this project. Jennifer Sarsfield, also of LOTD, provides not only her ferocious drumming, but her own haunting vocals to many of the songs. They’ve teamed up with the innovative musical contributors and harmonies of Sean Turner on lead guitar and Jacob Fleichmann on bass, rounding out the new and explorative sonic presence of this band”s matured sound. Together, The Steady Burn feels like a constant wave of thought and emotion, raw and powerful, that continues to break new ground.

This is going to be an excellent night of music and a really fun night! The Linsmore Tavern is extremely excited to welcome back on Friday November 3rd, a very unique tribute who focus on 3 of the greatest bands over the last 50 years, The Spiral Theory: Tribute to The Police, U2, and REM - Pioneers of Modern Rock! The Spiral Theory will be performing a two set tribute to these icons who were on top of the world during the 80's, ushering in a new era of guitar-oriented rock with a conscience. The third set for the evening will be covers that are equally energetic and crowd-pleasing from other influential rockers who followed (Foo Fighters, Black Keys, The Strokes. etc.) This fantastic band tore the roof off in all of their previous shows at the Linsmore and it's always a capacity crowd, so we are thrilled to bring them back again in 2023! The show starts at 9pm, so don't miss it!
THE PIONEERS OF MODERN ROCK!
In 1983, The Police is selling out stadiums across North America as the world’s most popular rock band. Their opening act, on their first national tour, is barely known R.E.M.. In 1985, U2 plays the Longest Day festival in Milton Keynes, England with R.E.M. on the same bill. Bono later stated meeting Michael Stipe on that day, and their ensuing friendship, was “one of the most important moments of my life.“ On the final show of the 1986 Amnesty National Tour at Giants Stadium in New York, The Police symbolically take their instruments off during “Invisible Sun” and pass them over to U2, who then finish the song before starting their own set. The torch is officially passed. By 1991, with the releases of "Achtung Baby" and "Out of Time", U2 and R.E.M. have become “the most important rock bands of a generation, setting a new standard for how arena rock concerts could feel and how they could communicate" - The Chicago Tribune.
Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door! You can buy tickets online at www.linsmoretavern.com

The Linsmore Tavern is excited to bring back one of the most popular bands to play the Linsmore Tavern, I Will Be King: Paying Tribute To The Genius of David Bowie on Saturday May 25th! I Will Be King have played fifteen outstanding SOLD-OUT shows at the Linsmore Tavern over the last few years and we are thrilled to have them come back! There are a few Bowie Tributes out there, but none of them stand up to I Will Be King! Let's face the facts, David Bowie is one of the most influential artist's who has ever lived and he is a musical genius! This 6 piece band will definitely deliver the goods of the music of David Bowie and if you are a fan of Bowie, do not miss this show! There really is no David Bowie Tribute out there, like them!
There are few Artists that have influenced so many aspects of pop culture than David Bowie, in style, fashion, musicality, performance and both genre and gender bending.
STILETTO FLATS began planning a very special tribute to David Bowie at the beginning of 2015. They had no idea that he would pass in 2016 (indeed, Bowie seemed to have an ethereal personality that would keep him with us for years to come). With his death, the Flats have taken very special measures to present the best Bowie tribute possible, recognizing that there are few or no female-centric bands that would dare to undertake this. They present you, I Will Be King: Paying Tribute To The Genius of David Bowie!
The Band Features:
Elana Harte, vocals, guitar Lucio Agostini, backs, guitar Janet Whiteway, backs, keyboards Jen Benton, bass Robyn McDonald, drums Suze Burmester, percs, backs
Tickets for this amazing show are now on sale and are only $12 in advance, $15 at the door! You can purchase your tickets online at www.linsmoretavern.com

The Duotangs do not play many shows, but when they do, you better show up to see them! Their previous 2 shows at the Linsmore were SOLD-OUT in advance and the band delivered on both occasions, which had many asking to bring them back! The Duotangs will entertain you with their amazing musicianship and fun setlist featuring songs ranging from the 1960s to current! This is going to be a great party night with a really fun band! Hailing from the widest reaches of the southern Ontario region, The Duotangs are comprised of Luc (vocals/guitar/keys), Josh (lead guitar), Devon (bass) and Brady (drums) and jam out fresh versions of well loved covers with a few deep cuts that you may not expect. It would not be unusual at a Duotang's show to hear rock, reggae, punk, ska, and reimagined arrangements of top 40 within one set. They hope to bring something for everyone and love to play for their dedicated group of fans and friends. Come hang out with them at the Linsmore Tavern May 11th at 9 pm for their illustrious return to the stage after a lengthy government imposed hiatus. Tickets available at linsmoretavern.com - $10 online in advance, $15 at the door. [post_title] => The Duotangs Returns to the Linsmore Tavern!
