This is really cool! The Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is hosting a night of Hardcore music with 5 different Hardcore Bands and 1 DJ! On Friday October 21st, Hardcore music fans the Linsmore is the place to be at, as this evening is dedicated to the Toronto Hardcore Music Scene! Featuring all the way from Seattle, Nightfeeder! Also on the bill are Toronto based Hardcore bands, Absolut, Dioxide, Fertilizer, Spearhead and DJ Marjie Bargy! The show starts at 9pm, there will be a $15 cover charge at the door!
Nightfeeder:
Nightfeeder on tour from Seattle are
Punishing, bitter, dingy punk with timeless catchy riffs played brutal and fast, with filthy breakdowns. Spiteful lyrics about the government not giving a fuck about you, colonialism and just having a hard time. Fans of State of Fear, Consume and Deathraid, rejoice. This band features 4 out of 5 members of the previously mentioned groups. No surprises of what to expect.
Absolut:
Absolut is a Toronto, Canada based hardcore punk band with an impressive discography , considering their formation back in 2010. The band plays something between Swedish, Japanese, British and American school of hardcore punk and kinda reminds me of the music played by the legendary bands such as Anti-Cimex, Broken Bones, English Dogs, Heresy, Discharge, Poison Idea, Battalion Of Saints, Crucifix…just to name a few. Reminiscing the 80’s a golden era for such a genre, but still not copying the bands I’ve already have mentioned above
Dioxide:
Dioxide are a newer band from Toronto. Who have made themselves known and quickly.
They play raw punk influenced by Discharge, early Finnish hardcore and dark UK82. Consistent dbeat remind you of early Discharge. Not to be missed.
Fertilizer:
Blown out, stomping fury. Fertilizer delivers mid-paced, old school Black Punk madness, spreading chaos and destruction via bass-heavy jangly grooves and total vocal evisceration.
Something to definitely please fans of Bone Awl, Raspberry Bulbs, Furdidurke or Dolmen Shrine.
Spearhead:
After an extended break Spearhead are back to bring you that blown sharp shock of noisy 80’s American style hardcore not unlike Negative Approach, or Koro. Expect nothing more than total breakneck speed. Stoked they reformed and you should be to.
DJ Marjie Bargy
 
But After the gig
Stick around and grab some drinks or just dance your face off…
You know her, you love her,
It ain’t a party without Marjie Bargy and she’ll be there playing your favourite punk , rnr , dance, goth and new wave hits and unearthing your new favourite tunes. Let’s dance baby!

This month the new 911 Night goes down on Wednesday August 31! The 10-19 Band is a band featuring some of Toronto's first responders who are some of the real heroes of our city! Get ready to party every last Wednesday of the month with GTA paramedics and nurses at the Linsmore Tavern, to some fun upbeat music from the 80s to now! There's no cover and the night starts at 8pm!
Sarah Young (Emergency Room Nurse) and Billy Young (Toronto Paramedic) started their music relationship together in the early 2000’s playing acoustic covers at work parties and teaming with co-worker Morgan Jones Phillips (Toronto Paramedic and writer of The Emergency Monologues) performing with an original blues/rock band in the Toronto live music scene. In 2015 they were approached by a booking agent to start a cover band consisting of all front line workers. The three of them invited musician/Medics to form The 10-19 Band that year and headlined the first annual “Artist In The Ambulance” show at 3030 in the Junction. The “Artist In The Ambulance” shows continued up until 2020 and 10-19 also played other shows during their first few years together. Unfortunately and as with many live performers Covid-19 took its toll on the live music scene and also front line workers. The 10-19 Band is excited to announce the next phase in “front line live music”. Thanks to The Linsmore Tavern the current 10-19 line up is a 5 piece band consisting of original members bringing back their unique blend of cover songs old and new. With their powerhouse singers Sarah and Annie Tat (Toronto Paramedic), Billy (guitar) Morgan (bass) and drummer Jesse McArthur (Toronto CBRN Medic) The 10-19 Band is happy to be reunited with their dancing crowds like back in the day!  Every last Wednesday of every month the 10-19 Band will be bringing you covers from modern artist like the Lumineers and Vance Joy to 80’s or 90’s and everything in between.

Anyone in Toronto that has seen this band, raves about them and that's why this is a MUST-SEE Saturday night at the Linsmore Tavern! The show starts at 9:30pm, tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door! Horshack rose up out of the ashes of the extremely popular Sunday night Orbit Room phenomena, Stifler's Mom.  The boys roll back the calender to the 70's (mostly), and will absolutely go all out till late at the Linsmore.  Horshack covers some popular and at times very difficult material from Boston, Pink Floyd, and Led Zepplin to some classic rockers from Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Talking Heads, and Tom Petty.  It's quite common for Canadian stars such as Ian Thornley, Gordie Johnson, and Ivana Santilli to show up and sit in with the guys.  Canadian guitar great and guitar player for Lady Gaga, Ricky Tillo, when not on the road will often sit in for a whole night. The band features: Chris Caddell: guitar/vocals Jimmy Reid: guitar/ vocals Derrick Brady: Bass/vocals Wade O Brown: keyboards/vocals Cassius Pereira: Drums Chris Caddell: guitar/vocals - Canadian Musician living in Toronto.
